Frank Rytkonen P.E.

Assistant Professor O.I.T. Wilsonville

Dual-input/single-output systems require separate control inputs to manipulate a single process value. Process examples include heating/cooling systems and waste neutralization. Frank Rytkonen, P.E., will discuss the control of such systems. He’ll illustrate applications of various control schemes and discuss performance differences. Finally, he’ll present how to optimally determine setpoint deadband in systems with dual-controller architecture.


Frank Rytkonen is an assistant professor in the Electrical Engineering and Renewable Energy department at Oregon Institute of Technology in Wilsonville where he teaches classes in instrumentation, controls, and power. He has a M.S. in electrical and computer engineering from Portland State University and is working toward earning his Ph.D. Frank has worked in instrumentation and controls since 1994 in positions such as control systems technician, control systems integrator, field service engineer, plant engineer, and consulting engineer. Frank is a senior member of ISA and a registered professional engineer in Oregon.
