In this article, a PID tuning rule is presented for a lab-scale batch reactor model in order to minimize the impact of load disturbance on the process. The tuning technique is solely determined from the maximum sensitivity (MS) criteria, which are dependent on the full-state feedback and also on the matching of frequency response. The only tuning parameter for the controller is the maximum sensitivity (MS) which indicates the level of robustness. Hence, by adjusting the value of (MS), the values of PID tuning coefficients can be determined precisely. The suggested method is suitable for integrating processes with dead time and also for other complex systems by narrowing it down to FOPDT process. This article provides a controller for a lab-equipped batch reactor using the proposed method for tuning the controller parameters.
