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.

Even with derivative-on-measurement, on a setpoint change, the proportional mode will cause a step change in controller output. This, too, may be undesirable. ” Figure 3-8 shows both proportional and derivative modes sensitive to measurement changes alone. This leaves only the integral mode on error, where it must remain, since it is responsible for assuring the longterm equality of setpoint and controlled variable. In event of a disturbance, there is no difference in the responses of derivative-on-measurement, proportional-on-measurement, and the configuration with all modes on error.

The example in the previous section employed cascade control to overcome the effect of disturbances caused by variations in hot oil supply pressure. It was noted, however, that variations in process flow rate would still cause a disturbance to the primary controller. If the process and hot oil flow rates varied in a proportionate amount, there would be only minimal effect on the process outlet temperature. Thus a ratio between the hot oil and process flow rates should be maintained. While this would eliminate most of the variability at the temperature controller, there may be other circumstances, such as heat exchanger tube scaling, that would necessitate a long-term shift in the required ratio.
