  1. Will try those, even while looking some things on examples under PID i did set it today to achieve very good control, probably need to play around mor with some values, but i am thinking to go on right direction. One thing more regarding encoder, ow i am having max 100Hz on HSC input, and while trying to set low rpm it works but it does not stabilizate soo good as on higher rpm, i can see that is due to fact, i do multiply frequency by 60 (so 6000 max) and then comparing that to setvalue .....it is abvious than minimum change is 60 when input goes +/-1Hz and that resolts in some 0,5Hz steps on inverter at end.....so i think using encoder with some 100P/R will get me around 2500Hz max and more "accurate" regulation?
  2. I did some test setup today, i have U90, inverter with 0-10V analog input and three phase motor which has max 1500rpm and proxy switch on shaft used as encoder, on max motor rpm 1500, i have 100Hz from "sensor" to PLC. PID is now working ok, it is not so accurate because of low encoder resolution (only 4 pulses per rotation) but that is not issue, since even now stability is ok. Thing that is problem to me is this: When i start inverter motor start to max rpm than after few secounds when probably pid starts working than it falls to set value and everaything is working fine, but i would like to work, if i set to 900rpm that motor spins up to 900 and holds like now. I am useing PI only (Kd is 0) and tried parameters in numerous way, but this problem persist. Even i tried to send start signal from inverter, or to start it from plc, also tried acceleration and deceleration ramp on inverter but same.
  3. if I did understood corectly, you think to use PID function (or P only as i think it will be suficient) and to set timer to 5 sec, so to send error signal to inverter every 5 sex or so? Also, besides PID, i was think to use something like this: pout two loops, one would be increase, other decresase, depending of setvalue/measured value from encoder. So every say 1sec plc will calculate error between setvalue and measured and we will have on plc to inverter voltage proportional to it, i think pretty much similar to P only controller, but slower. One more thing i concidering is choice of encoder, was think to use 100 pulse per rotation encoder, even now i have proxy switch on shaft which will gave me something like 100Hz when rpm is max and around 15Hz on min rpm....is this suficient, because it will be less resolution than with encoder which would provide some 1700Hz on max.......I do understand i do not need higher resolution, but just thinking are there any issues i will need to be taken care off? Thanks!
  4. Hi! Today i did some test and figured to get some results, but not on real condition, just sending square pulses from signal gen to PLC to see what happends when measured value reaches and goes over or lower than set value.....i see it is working, so i can set how fast will raspond etc..... Anyway, motor will be running spool who is collecting rope, catch is that roope speed in meters per minute needs to be constant and is measured by small drum driven by rope only and with shaft encoder. So if i set speed to say 200m/min i can do calculation to know frequency which will need to be on encoder output to achive that speed, acordingly will make input for PID set value....thing is as spool getting bigger it will "pull" rope faster because of higher diameter, so that motor rpm needs to get lower to maintain rope speed constant.....just normal negative feedback in regulation, so the motor will probably need to run from some 20% up to 100% (depending on chosen speed before start) and regulation will be from max 100% to some 30% when spool is full......i do not need regulation to be exact, variations in some +/- 4-5% are ok..... Will use small 0,5kW inverter and motor with encoder on shaft in weekend to try some tests...... I know inverters have build in PI or PID, but would like to do this on PLC as desired values needs to be entered on plc as well some other commands like start, stop, reverse will be controlled from PLC.
  5. Hi to all! I am new to unitronics and PID, serched on internet how pid works and i understood theory well, but..... I've have idea to controll 3ph motor inverter with analog output from PLC (0-10V will be 0 to full rpm) and feedback to plc will be proxy sensor which will send impulses to HSI input of plc, and set value which will be entered to plc. So far i am trying to use PID example from flow controll, but no mather what i put in as values or what input is (frequency) i do not get anything to analog output.....in short, my idea was this: When motor is not running i should have max value on analog output, so 10V, when i start inverter set ramp will gonna try to rotatate motor to max, since i read impulses as frequency, when we reach impulses to be same as set point controller should start to lower analog output so to negative feedback start working and controll rotation in such way.....so basicly, on max rpm i will have something like 100Hz from proxy switch to plc, when motor is stopped i shoudl have 10V on analog output, and proportionaly while input frequency is rising up i should have lower analog output.......later i can do scaling values to fit my range. To start now, what is best possibly way to do this, as i can see PID function? Since, i can have some +/- 1-3% offset from nominal i would like to start with P (proportional) function only, but do not know how to set PID to work as P only? best regards,
