About the Author

KARL J. ÅSTRÖM, PH.D., is a veteran scientist, engineer, and teacher in the area of automatic control. He was educated at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden, where he received a M.Sc. in Engineering Physics and a Ph.D. in Automatic Control and Mathematics. Among his many accomplishments in teaching and research, he worked on inertial guidance for the Research Institute of National Defense in Stockholm where, together with F. Hector of Philips, he developed a new principle for Schuler tuning of an inertial platform that was successfully flight tested. In the early 1960s he joined the IBM Nordic Laboratory to work on theory and applications of computerized process control. He later worked on optimal and stochastic control as a visiting scientist at IBM Research Laboratories in Yorktown Heights and San Jose. Upon his return to Sweden, Åström was responsible for modeling, identification, and implementation of systems for the computer control of paper machines. Åström later accepted an appointment as Professor to the Chair of Automatic Control at Lund Institute of Technology/University of Lund. Åström has served as Dean of the Department of Engineering Physics and Chairman of the Computing Board at Lund University in Sweden, and he has held visiting appointments at universities in the United States, Europe, and Asia.

The holder of three patents, Åström is an editor of the journal Automatica. He has written five books and many papers. He is a fellow of the IEEE, a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences and the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences (IVA). He is also a foreign associate of the U.S. National Academy of Engineering. Åström has received many awards, among them the Rufus Oldenburger Medal from ASME in 1985, the Quazza medal from IFAC in 1987, the IEEE Control Systems Science and Engineering Award in 1990, and the IEEE Medal of Honor "for fundamental contributions to theory and applications of adaptive control technology" in 1993.

TORE HÄGGLUND, PH.D., is a professor in the Department of Automatic Control at the Lund Institute of Technology in Lund, Sweden. He holds an M.S. in Engineering Physics and a Ph.D. in Automatic Control, both from the Lund Institute of Technology. During his Ph.D. studies that focused on adaptive control and fault detection, he and Dr. Karl J. Åström developed the relay autotuner for automatic tuning of PID controllers. The method was patented and is now implemented in many industrial products. After completing his studies, Dr. Hägglund joined SattControl Instruments (now ABB) where he implemented automatic tuning methods and developed new industrial adaptive controllers.

Upon completion of his work at SattControl Instruments, he returned to the Department of Automatic Control at Lund Institute of Technology where his research in process control, adaptive control, and fault detection has resulted in a new dead-time compensting controller, methods for supervision of PID controllers and automatic detection of friction in valves, and a method to compensate for static friction in control valves. These methods have also been implemented in industrial products.

Format: Paperback
Most industrial controllers are PI or PID controllers, and few textbooks or accademic Journal articles address them. I've been working in industrial process control for over twenty years and this book is one of the best one's I've found on PI/PID control. The presentation is practical rather than theoretical (some might miss not having more math). The first four chapters summarize when PI/PID control is useful and present several of the traditional tuning methods. Chapter 5 presents new tuning algorithms that are easy to apply in practice and usually result in better control that older methods (like the atrocious Ziegler-Nichols). Chapter 6 gets side-tracked discussing commercial products that will rapidly be out of date. Chapter 7 returns to practical applications and simple examples - I was amused to see boiler drum level control discussed in one page when we've spent so much time on this problem! The one thing missing from the book is control of nonlinear systems - even the simple example of level control with a fixed stroke-time valve is omitted - but aside from this shortcoming, it is a most useful book.

Format: Paperback
An excellent reference about PID controllers, Process Models, and Tuning Methods.

I have been working for more than 16 years as an Instrumentation, Automation and Process Safety and Control Engineer for the Oil & Gas Industry. I found this book to be a good bridge between the theory and industrial practical applications of PID controllers.

A readable text that will be useful for students and practitioners of Process Control.

Format: Paperback
I have used this book as a "self study", when I was working in control industry (Kongsberg and ABB) and found it very helpful.

I have also recommended the book to all my students when teaching control theory in the College of Bergen (Norway). This book holds mush of the traditional theory and is a bridge to get theory into practical use in the industry.

I will also mention Åstrøms new book "Introduction to Control" that I am looking forward to see in the bookstore. This book gives a traditional introduction that focus on the "full picture" and good understanding. A must for the best universities!
