The mass of the process unit, say, a plastics extruder barrel, acts as a filter to remove the low-frequency harmonics and apply an even amount of heating or cooling to the process. 5 Manual-Automatic Switching It is desirable to provide a means for process operator intervention in a control loop in event of abnormal circumstances, such as a sensor failure or a major process upset. Figures 3-5, 3-6, and 3-7 show a manual-automatic switch that permits switching between manual and automatic modes.

2 Tuning from Open Loop Tests The open-loop process testing method uses only the manually-set output of the controller. A typical response to a step change in output was shown in Figure 3-4. It is often possible to approximate the response with a simplified process model containing only three parameters—the process gain (Kp), the dead time in the process (Td), and the process time constant (τp). Figure 3-10 shows the response of a first-order-plus-dead-time (FOPDT) model that approximates the true process response.
