A technique for on-line identification and tuning is proposed to be used in the framework of a MIMO autotuning procedure. The proposed technique does not suffer from the risks of instability and the lack in performance of common tuning techniques in MIMO autotuning. Identification is accomplished through an extension of the well known ATV autotune identification method and requires only few additional tests in order to obtain some more knowledge about the process. The resulting model, which describes with good precision the process in a region of frequencies around the critical point, is then used for tuning: the integral time is found as a function of the model time constants and delay, while the gain is computed in order to give a desired value of the closed-loop resonance peak. Examples of application show that advantages over other proposed techniques can be retained for processes having different dynamic characteristics.
