Controller Control Modes

Learning objectives

  • Describe each of the following controller modes:
    • On-off control mode
    • Proportional control mode
    • Integral, or reset, control mode
    • Derivative, or rate, control mode
  • Explain how each mode works to keep a process at its desired value or setpoint

Course overview

The Controller Control Modes training course examines the four main types, or modes, of control action found on instrumentation in industrial facilities. The course explains each mode and illustrates it with examples of control loops.

This course describes the design and function of the four main control modes used by industrial controllers, including:

  • On-off control
  • Proportional control
  • Integral (reset) control
  • Derivative (rate) control

Controller Control Modes is part of the Controllers and Final Control training series.
