Abstract

pH neutralization is one of the crucial processes to all industries with various functions range from food processing industry to wastewater treatment. Hence, the process must be maintained at optimum performance to fulfill its functionality. However, pH neutralization is a highly nonlinear process with high sensitivity at the neutralization point. The complexity of the process has challenged the conventional control strategy's performance. Currently, the control strategy used in the pilot plant (PI controller) is adequate with certain range of error. Thus, the objective of this project is to investigate, design and implement advanced control strategy which can improve the overall performance of the conventional control strategy. The calibration results show that the pilot plant's measuring meters have poor accuracy and repeatability. Due to this, no practical experiments have been performed throughout this research. Prior to simulation works, the pilot plant's model obtained from other researcher has been validated. The simulation results show that the model has faster dynamic response compare to the pilot plant. Nevertheless, the model is still being used for simulation. Through this research, the limitation of PI control strategy in controlling nonlinear process has been observed. Fuzzy logic controller (FLC) has been developed to improve the control performance of PI controller. According to the simulation results, FLC has produced excellent control performance with the ability of controlling process' nonlinear region. As a conclusion, advanced control strategy such as FLC is more superior to PI controller in nonlinear process control. For further research, perhaps the advanced control strategy developed can be implemented in the pilot plant to examine its real time performance.
