AutoPILOT Pro Flow Control with Pressure Override.

In order to program a flow control loop using PID with a pressure override the following procedure is to be used to program the AutoPILOT Pro using the Auto Config Program.

1. We will be using 2 PID items (or PID loops) and the High/Low Selection function. One of the PID loops will be used for the Flow Control and the other PID loop will be used for the Pressure Control. We will then use the High/Low Selection to determine which PID loop will be controlling the output.

2. In the AutoConfig software expand Calculations under the Navigation bar, then expand Table 33 - PID and double click on the first item, PID Calc #1.

33 - PID and double click on the first item, PID Calc #1. 3. By default,

3. By default, at least the first 4 process variables are connected to the flow reading for the first 4 meter runs, and the output value is connected to the analog output. These will all need to be cleared out except for the first process variable on the first PID loop, since the flow for the first meter run will be what we will be using for the first PID loop.

4. To do this, put your cursor over the word s "Process Variable #2", then

4. To do this, put your cursor over the words "Process Variable #2", then do a right click and click on Clear. This will clear the default connection to meter run 2. Do the same for Process variables 3 and 4, and for Output Value. Then double click on PID Calc #2 under Table 33 and clear the connections for the first 4 process variables and the Output Value for this loop.

5. Now go back to PID Calc #1 and set up the parameters as they are needed and make sure you Enable the calculation and click on the Apply button every time you make a change to this screen. The main thing that is different between this PID and the one in the AutoMate and AutoPILOT is that we now have a Remote and Local Set point. The Local Set point is used when you are setting up the unit locally, and the Remote Set point is the one used by the Control Room. You do need to make sure the Control Mode is left in Remote before you leave the installation site. This is if the Control Room is downloading Set points remotely or else use the Local Set Point. We also now have the “Pro Term” (proportional) now instead of the Gain.

6. Once both PID loops are set up, they need to be connected to the High/Low Select function. Connect the Output Value of PID Calc #1 to Process Variable #1 on the High/Low Select, and the Output Value of PID Calc #2 to Process Variable #2 on the High/Low Select.

7. On the Navigation bar, expand Physical Data Points, and then expand Table 21 - Physical Analog Outputs. Copy the first Analog Output (Analog Output #1) and paste it to the “Output Value” in Table 35 – High/ Low Selection.

8. Under Table 35 – High/Low Selection the following menus need to be entered.

9. The last step here is to decide which pressure input will be controlling the Flow Control. As an example we are using the “Static Pressure” from the first run to control the flow. The next step will be to go to Table 38 - Differential Pressure Flow (DP Flow Calc # 1) and copy the Static Pressure and paste it to Table 33 – PID Calc # 2 under Process Variable # 1.

10. This completes the programming of a Flow control with Pressure Override.
