PID Explained for Process Engineers: Part 2 — Tuning Coefficients
The appropriate values for the proportional, integral, and derivative mode tuning coefficients for a PID controller must reflect the behavior of the process and the desired performance from the control loop.
Modeling Mixed-Solvent Electrolyte Systems
The fundamental thermodynamic equations developed for aqueous electrolyte systems provide a springboard for modeling the more-complex and less-understood mixed-solvent electrolytes.
