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. In the manual mode, the operator can set the signal to the controller output. However, when the switch is returned to the automatic position, the automatic controller output must match the operator’s manual setting or else there will be a “bump” in the controller output.

These forms are called the position and the velocity forms, respectively. Assuming that the controller is in the automatic mode, the following equations are processed at each sample instant for the position algorithm. The subscript “n” refers to the nth processing instant, “n-1” to the previous processing instant, and so on. Compute the error: en = SPn − CVn Increment sum of errors: S n = S n −1 + en ª º ∆T T mn = KC «en + Sn + D ( en − en −1 ) » TI ∆T ¬ ¼ Compute controller output: (3-3) Save Sn and en values for the subsequent processing time.

If the disturbance is to have no effect on the controlled variable (that is the objective of feedforward control), these two paths must be mirror images that cancel out each other. Thus the feedforward controller must be the ratio of the two process dynamic effects, with an appropriate sign adjustment. The correct sign will be obvious in any practical situation. 2), then C(s) is comprised of, at most, a steady-state gain, a lead-lag and a dead-time function. These functions are contained in every vendor’s function block library.
