  • Let's Get Started

    Here we go, the most challenging of all steps is the first one so I will start safe (baby steps concept) by sharing with you the topics I hope to cover in this blog:

  • What is the Best PID Execution Time?

    An execution time that is too slow can degrade control loop performance. An execution time too fast can unnecessarily increase the loading in the distributed control system (DCS) or programmable logic controller (PLC). Less recognized is an excessively fast module execution time can cause the module to run out of free time, decrease the signal to noise ratio, and increase valve packing wear.
