AbstractThis paper presents a novel technique in designing controller for integrating process with inverse response and time delay. Using Pade’s approximation, the positive zero is approximated to a negative zero by modifying the time delay of process. The polynomial approach is employed for the rearranged process to derive the controller parameters. The tuning parameter is selected based on the value of maximum sensitivity. Set point filtering is employed to reduce the overshoot in servo response. Various bench marking examples are considered to evaluate the proposed method. The evaluation is carried out in terms of various performances.
