An on-line process dead-time estimation algorithm
Abstract: An algorithm has been developed estimating the process dead-time within a closed-loop time invariant system. This paradigm allows for the estimation of the process dead-time without the need for open-loop tests or disabling the controller. The algorithm can estimate the process dead-time in the presence of noise within the control loop increasing the applicability to industrial applications. The process dead-time estimate can replace the constant dead-time assumptions in the control performance assessments, such as the dead-time constant in the Harris Index calculation.
