This paper describes an expert system which tunes a Proportional- Integral-Derivative PID controller on-line for a single-input-single-output multiple-lag process with dead time. The expert system examines features of the previous transient responses and their corresponding sets of controller parameters. It determines a new set of controller gains to obtain a more desirable time response. This technique can be used to determine and implement a different set of PID gains for each operating regime and, once in steady state, the system can be used to find optimal parameters for load disturbance rejection. The expert system can be applied to any system of the specified form aerospace, industrial, etc. and can be expanded to include additional process models.
