A simple method of designing the controllers for a modified form of Smith predictor is proposed for integrating and double integrating processes with time delay. The modified Smith predictor has two controllers, namely, a set point tracking controller and a load disturbance rejection controller for obtaining good set point tracking and load disturbance rejection, respectively. The set point tracking controller is designed using the classical direct synthesis method based on the process model without considering the time delay. The disturbance rejection controller is considered as a proportional-derivative (PD) controller and is designed using optimal gain and phase margin approaches. Set point weighting is considered for reducing undesirable overshoots and settling times in the modified Smith predictor. Guidelines are provided for selection of the desired closed loop tuning parameter in the direct synthesis method and the set point weighting parameter. The method gives significant load disturbance rejection performances. Illustrative examples are considered to show the performances of the proposed method. A significant improvement in control performance is obtained when compared to recently reported methods. © 2006 ISA.
