The article presents the decentralized Proportional Integral (PI) controller which is designed and implemented with decoupler for a Batch Distillation Process. Decoupler is used to minimize the interaction combining it with decentralized control algorithm. In order to minimize the loop interaction between the loops, an ideal decoupling technique is implemented on a First Order Plus Dead Time (FOPDT) model. The PI controller is designed using Pole Placement technique. The simulation of Pole Placement technique has been adopted to study the main effect and the interaction effect of the Batch Distillation Column. The controller is designed and implemented on a Batch Distillation Column.
