On/off versus proportional control

On/off versus proportional control West Control Solutions has released the third in its on-going series of video guides designed to help customers install and tune the most efficient possible temperature control solutions.

The new video is entitled Different Types Of Control. Following on from the first video, On/Off v. Proportional Control, it offers a clear and simple explanation of options available within the field of Proportional Control. Users who watch the two videos in sequence will swiftly gain a basic understanding of these options and be able to programme equipment for best efficiency and performance in their given application.

A number of options are explained, such as integral action, which when added to proportional action enables measurement of control deviation and the smoothing out of errors. This capability is useful, for example, when changes in ambient conditions or demand alter the heat input to the system, such as when users draw more hot water from an immersion tank during busy times of the day.

The West Control Solutions video guide series is ideal for anyone who is considering the specification and installation of a control system but has not yet developed a full understanding of the factors involved.
