Multi-Stage Rolling Mill Process, Part 3: Tension Control

From the series: Simulating a Multi-Stage Rolling Mill Process

Alec Stothert, MathWorks

This webinar is the third in a three-part series that highlights the use of MathWorks products for modeling and control of a multistage rolling mill process. In this webinar, you will learn how to design PID controllers for managing tension in a multistage rolling mill process. You will also see how you can use the linearization and tuning capabilities of Simulink Control Design to achieve the frequency and time domain specifications of your designs. Through product demonstrations, MathWorks engineers will show how you can:

  • Use the design features available in the new PID Controller block user interface
  • Tune PID blocks to meet time and frequency domain design requirements

Product Focus

  • Simulink Control Design
  • Simulink
