Distillation Column – MIMO System

Distillation Column – Multi-Input Multi-Output System Report By Mohawk College

 

Non-Technical Report Summary

1. A System with 2 Inputs and 2 Outputs

For this system, edeX presented a significant improvement in settling time and noise attenuation versus the PID. The settling time for edeX was 35% to 44% faster and the noise impact in the controller output signal was 60% to 90% smaller.

2. System with 3 Inputs and 3 Outputs

For the 3×3 system, the settling time and response to disturbance from edeX was significantly better than the PID. For edeX the settling time for the controllers was 48% to 90% faster than the PID. edeX able to handle disturbance issues without affecting the process.

Technical Report Summary

1. System with 2 Inputs and 2 Outputs

For this system, when comparing the PID and edeX-FLC system, the edeX-FLC system presented a significant improvement in settling time and noise attenuation. The settling time for the edeX-FLC was 35% to 44% faster and the noise impact in the controller output signal was 60% to 90% smaller.

2. System with 3 Inputs and 3 Outputs

For the 3×3 system, the settling time and response to disturbance from the edeX-FLC system was significantly better than the PID system. The settling time for the controllers was 48% to 90% faster than the PID system and the edeX-FLC controllers were able to handle disturbance issues without affecting the process.
