Abstract

See full text

A feedback controller for generating and using a normalized performance index for a feedback control loop is shown and described. The feedback controller is configured to generate an input for a control process, identify an error signal representing a difference between a setpoint and a feedback signal from the control process, compute a first exponentially-weighted moving average (EWMA) of a first function of the error signal and a second EWMA of a second function of the error signal, and to generate a normalized performance index using the first EWMA and the second EWMA.
