Pitops is abbreviation for Process Identification and Controller Tuning Optimizer Simulator. It is aimed at developing and commissioning supervisory and advanced control strategies in the DCS or PLC. Furthermore, Pitops tunes all PIDs from millisecond time frame to several hours of time constant – single/slave, cascade and constraint over-ride types. Pitops was created by a group of experienced process control engineers with years of control room experience on PID tuning, cascade or override PIDs, DCS-based advanced control strategies and MPC systems. Pitops is OPC-based and can directly connect to any DCS or PLC.
