Automatic Tuning of a Multivariable Distillation Column Controller

Arkadiy Turevskiy, MathWorks

Design a 2-by-2 controller for a distillation column. Tune two PI (proportional-integral) controllers and a decoupling matrix automatically to meet design requirements. Use the Control System Tuner app to select model blocks to tune, specify design requirements, tune controller gains, and update Simulink® blocks with tuned parameter values. Verify the design using nonlinear simulation.
