This app will be really helpful to do the PID simulation, it can do the simulation of hot and cold water vessel mixer. This app has three PID control valves that can control the vessel water temperature, vessel level, and vessel outlet flow of the mixed water. By this simulation app, we can solve the mass and heat balance, and the user can change the setpoints for the parameters and also the PID parameters too. This app can be used to do the hot water mixing scheme control.

This app is really useful for PID practice, it could be used to improve the tuning skills by adjusting the PID terms in real-time and seeing the reaction of the system. The process characteristics can be entered and can check the tuning parameters before using it in the plant. This app shows the real-time process that means it would show how the process will react to the tuning parameters according to the changes in the set point. The response time of this app is similar to that of a real plant and it will be very useful

This app has many PID controller tuning methods, the controller parameters are calculated by using internal-mode control, integral of absolute error, integral of time-weighted absolute error and some other methods are used for calculating the controller parameters by using the process parameters gain, time constant and dead time can be checked. This app will allow us to compute all methods at once, to the same process and also it will allow the user to compare and verify which method is good for its process. This app is mainly used for study purposes.

With the help of this app, we can control the CSTR reactor with PID control to optimize production and this can be done without ran away reaction. The reaction of a CSTR reactor is controlled by a feed of a flow rate and by controlling the temperature of the reactor. The temperature controller set, the set point of the flow of the cooling water to the jacket of the reactor.
