SIEMENS PID Professional – TIA Portal

Overview

  • PID Professional combines the two option packages Modular PID Control and Standard PID Control in the TIA Portal.
  • Permits the simple integration of continuous PID controllers, pulse controllers and step controllers in the application program
  • Can be used for simple to complex closed-loop control tasks in SIMATIC S7-300 (CPU 313 or higher), S7-400, and WinAC.
  • The engineering software for PID Professional is already included in the STEP 7 package in V13 or higher.
  • Tuning functionality by means of PID Self-Tuner (part of STEP 7 as of V11 SP1).
  • Reduces engineering costs thanks to time-saving parameterization and optimization of the controller

Design

The PID Professional software package comprises the two software packages Modular PID Control and Standard PID Control.

Image result for PID Professional

Both controller solutions contain commissioning functions and standard function blocks for a wide range of different controller structures.

The commissioning software has an intuitive and easy-to-use interface.

A large number of implementation examples are available for both controllers. This simplifies the implementation of different controller structures.

The following ready-to-use PID controllers are supplied with the Standard PID Control:

  • Fixed-setpoint controller with switching output for integrating final control elements
  • Fixed-setpoint controller with continuous output for proportional final control elements
  • Multi-loop ratio controller
  • Mixture controller
  • Cascade controller

The 27 standard function blocks of the Modular PID Control also enable the user to implement each desired controller structure. To speed up the learning process, clear and easy application examples assist in the process of implementing the desired PID controller.


Function

Commissioning software

The configuration tool is seamlessly integrated into STEP 7 (TIA Portal). It provides the following functions:

  • Commissioning screens:
    The commissioning software contains all screens for commissioning Modular and Standard PID Control.
  • Working with trend view:
    The trend view is used for graphical illustration of the setpoint, actual value and manipulated variable over time. The values of the trend view are updated at configurable intervals. This is of particular benefit for the verification of the process quality and supports the troubleshooting.
  • Wizard for optimization of control circuits:
    The clear and simple controller optimization and the commissioning by means of the PID Self-Tuner can be performed even without any knowledge of control systems.
  • Variable transient response in the case of the continuous PID controller:
    The transient response of the control loop can be preselected in such a way that the control loop settles with an overshoot of approximately 10% and therefore gains dynamic response. If this is not desirable, aperiodic settling (no overshoot) can be set.
  • User-friendly, context-sensitive help:
    At any point in the program the appropriate help is available upon request.
Standard PID Control functions

The controller structure for Standard PID Control is pre-assembled and the data structure is fixed. The following functions can be switched on and off by means of software switches:

  • Setpoint processing with setpoint value generator, ramp-soak, normalization, FC call, limiting of the setpoint ramp (ramp-function generator) and limiting of the setpoint.
  • Actual-value processing with scaling, smoothing, square root, FC call, limit value monitoring and monitoring of the actual-value gradient.
  • Error signal processing with dead band and limit monitoring.
  • PID algorithm, in the case of step controllers with and without position feedback.
  • Manipulated value processing, with manual/automatic switchover, manual value generator, FC call, limiting of the setpoint gradient, setpoint limitation and normalization

Functions

PID_CP

PID controller with continuous manipulated variable (continuous controller) or pulse output (pulse controller); in addition to the functions in the setpoint and actual-value branch, it implements a complete PID controller with a continuous manipulated variable, which is also made available as a pulse-width-modulated signal; manipulated variable can also be influenced manually, sub-functions can be connected or disconnected

PID_ES

PID controller with binary manipulated variable (step controller); in addition to the functions in the setpoint and actual-value branch, it implements a complete PID controller with a binary manipulated variable for integrating actuators. The step controller can be implemented with or without position feedback; manipulated variable can also be influenced manually, sub-functions can be connected or disconnected

LP_SCHED

Loop scheduler; controls the calling of individual control loops within the cyclic interrupt level
