Abstract :

There are many control strategies employed in electric cable manufacturing industry to produce high quality products. In order to ensure good quality product formation, one requirement is to control the temperature of an extruder plant so as to form molten plastic on a wire. The gain parameters of the proportional integral and derivative (PID) controller designed in this work were obtained using the MATLAB PID tuner. The gain parameters were then implemented in MATLAB/SIMULINK environment. The designed controller was integrated with the single screw plastic extruder dynamic model to have an efficient control loop. The efficiency provided by the designed controller shows that the system responds efficiently to a step input temperature. The improved efficient characteristics performances of the system are rise time of 0.0245s, settling time of 0.237s and overshoot of 6.92%. The designed controller can be effectively employed in a single screw extruder for efficient electric cable manufacturing
