Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) control is the workhorse control algorithm for process manufacturers. When tuned properly, it seeks to move a loop’s process variable (PV) to the setpoint (SP) as quickly as possible without overshoot or instability. But, in some cases, even proper tuning is not enough. External factors such as equipment failures, mechanical performance, or incorrect […]

The global market for natural gas has changed dramatically over the past several years. Some noteworthy changes include huge new supplies of natural gas from U.S. shale gas regions, more liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities both on the liquefaction and regassification side, and addition downstream petrochemical processing facilities that use natural gas as a feedstock. […]

Bulk liquids terminal operators have largely relied on a mix of automated and manual operations to perform their role in the liquids movement supply chain. This mixed mode of operations means there are holes or delays in data to aid in decision making, which makes the terminal operate less efficient, reliable, and more prone to […]
