Abstract

The primary objective is to modify the existing control algorithm of the pilot target circuit (TC-1) loop to achieve precise temperature control. Safety concerns, the alarm system, and a user-friendly design are the secondary objectives.

The decoupling and active disturbance rejection controls are the effective control scheme in this special multivariable control process to TC-1 loop.

The research objectives are:

• To identify the interacting terms between heater inputs and target temperature outputs in each zone experimentally,

• To design of decoupling and active disturbance rejection control (ADRC),

• To monitor system through internet based remote monitoring, automatic alarming and data retrieval from any authorized networked PCs,

• To automatic 24-hour safety and emergency monitor system.

The goals are:

• To understand the interaction between heater inputs and target temperature outputs, as well as the influence of EM pump,

• To employ the decoupling and active disturbance rejection control algorithm in the complex target circulation loop,

• To accomplish the automatic safety alarm and monitoring system.
