WANG, C. C.. A study of R2R control improvement using adjustment limit to reduce frequency of control. S. Afr. J. Ind. Eng. [online]. 2013, vol.24, n.2, pp.102-110. ISSN 2224-7890.
In the traditional run-to-run (R2R) control scheme, the controller provides the feedback strategy, enabling each run of process output to remain as close to the target as possible. However, in practice this process encounters bottlenecks if all the runs are started with a control parameter adjustment, as this will increase process variation in the stable process. In this paper, an improved R2R control scheme is developed to add an adjustments limitation technique to both the EWMA controller and the self-tuning controller. From the simulation, analysis of the results shows that the proposed procedure can effectively reduce the frequency of controller adjustments, without affecting the capability of the original controller. Therefore, in practical applications, the proposed control framework can be used to prevent the problem of process over-control.
