Abstract

Iterative feedback tuning constitutes an attractive control loop tuning method for processes in the absence of sufficient process insight. It is a purely data driven approach to optimization of the loop performance. The standard formulation ensures an unbiased estimate of the loop performance cost function gradient, which is used in a search algorithm. A slow rate of convergence of the tuning method is often experienced when tuning for disturbance rejection. This is due to a poor signal to noise ratio in the process data. A method is proposed for increasing the information content in data by introducing an optimal perturbation signal in the tuning algorithm. For minimum variance control design the optimal design of an external perturbation signal is derived in terms of the asymptotic accuracy of the iterative feedback tuning method.
