We installed ezca library on PLS's Sun machine. Now, we can run perl script for Refcav thermalPID control.
The PID gain is being optimized. Channels for SLOWDC's PID thermal control are also created (C3:PSL-FSS_SLOWPID....)
and saved in fss_pid.db file.
We copied a command package from op440m to the sun machine here, and it can run perl script (RCthermalPID.pl)used at 40m.
The current gain setup is
KP = -0.6
KI = -0.007
KD = 0
The plot below shows a response from a step change of temperature (set to 34.86 C). The cavity temperature does not hang around the set temperature. Instead, it hovers just below the set temp point, see fig1. The time span is 110 mins.
I think it reaches equilibrium quite fast.
