9.2.2   PI Control Design by Pole Placement

Consider the closed-loop system with PI control in Figure 9.9. We have four
design goals for the PI controller: (1) the closed-loop system is stable; (2) steady-
state error is minimized; (3) settling time does not exceed; and (4) maximum

overshoot does not exceed . The first design goal is achieved by ensuring that
all poles lie within the unit circle. The second goal is achieved by using a PI
controller, at least for a step change in the reference and/or disturbance inputs.
Thus, the design problem is reduced to goals 3 and 4. These control goals can
be achieved by properly selecting the parameters KP and KI of the PI controller.

Our approach assumes that G(z) is a first-order system. If G(z) is a higher-order
system, we can use Equation (3.30) to construct a first-order approximation
of G(z). The case of G(z) having order 0 is considered in the problems at the end
of the chapter. Note that if G(z) is first order, the closed-loop system is second
order since the PI controller...

Products & Services
IC Electronic Filters
IC electronic filters are frequency-selective circuits that consist of devices such resistors, capacitors, inductors, transistors, or operational amplifiers coupled with reactive components.
Globe Valves
Globe valves are linear motion valves with rounded bodies, from which their name is derived.  They are widely used in industry to regulate fluid flow in both on/off and throttling service. 
Industrial Valves
Valves are mechanical devices that control the flow and pressure of liquids, gases, and slurries within a system. They are also known as regulators and are used in a wide variety of applications. Valves vary greatly in size, design, function, and operation.
Control Valves
Control valves or proportional valves are power-operated devices used to modify fluid flow or pressure rate in a process system.
Loop Powered Devices

Loop powered devices are electronic devices that can be connected in a transmitter loop, normally a current loop, without the need to have a separate or independent power source. Typical loop powered devices include sensors, transducers, transmitters, isolators, monitors, PLCs, and many field instruments.
