Press Release Summary:
OvationTune(TM) modular loop tuning software is integrated with OvationÂ® Information & Control System. It allows users to automatically generate PID parameters, re-tune loops, and monitor complete system comprised of multiple PID loops. Users can log data, view multiple loop event logs, and analyze error distribution curves. Users can also model and simulate process loops, and switch loop to advanced adaptive tuning without disturbing current process.
Original Press Release:
ControlSoft Alliance Gives Birth to OvationTune(TM) for Westinghouse Process Control's Ovation(R) Information & Control System
CLEVELAND, OHIO - February 4, 2002: A licensing agreement between Westinghouse Process Control, Inc., a business of Emerson Process Management, and ControlSoft, Inc. has resulted in the availability of OvationTune(TM), a new version of ControlSoft's classic INTUNE loop tuning software.
OvationTune is seamlessly integrated with Westinghouse's Ovation® Information & Control System, permitting users of the system to take advantage of all the features of ControlSoft's award-winning loop tuning software.
Ovation users will now be able to generate PID parameters automatically, re-tune a loop for optimal performance, and monitor a complete system comprised of multiple PID loops to determine how the system is being controlled. With a list of features unmatched by any industrial HMI or logic programming software, OvationTune is a unique software tool, built in a modular format and specifically designed for process control.
OvationTune users can log data, view multiple loop event logs, analyze error distribution curves, model and simulate process loops, and even switch a loop to advanced adaptive tuning without disturbing the process currently running.
Using a multiple-loop configuration, OvationTune includes the following modules:
Loop Diagnostics to detect and rectify (adapt-tune) abnormal process behavior
Auto-Tuning - to generate optimal tuning parameters during loop commissioning
Simulation graphical interface provides answers to what-ifs
