Control Point Offset Controlled Variable Setpoint T1 T2 T3 T4 Time T5 T6 Figure 1-12 Proportional Plus Integral Control 20 Fundamentals of HVAC Control Systems The sensitivity of the control logic is now a function of both the proportional gain Kp and the integral gain Ki. Just as with proportional control, it is possible to have unstable control if the gains are too high; they must be tuned for the application. One disadvantage of including the integral term is an effect called windup. This is caused when the control loop is operating but the controlled device is disconnected or otherwise not able to control the controlled variable, such as when a system is turned off at night.

If we were at a steady load that was higher, for example, we would need to open the valve more, requiring a larger signal V. To increase the value of V, the second term of Equation 1-2 would have to be non-zero, meaning our error would have to be non-zero. This error is the offset or droop. The amount of the offset is a function of the constant Kp (the controller proportional gain). The larger the gain is, the smaller the offset. However, increasing the gain to minimize offset must be done with care because too high a gain may result in instability and a rapid oscillation around the setpoint (called hunting).

Starters may be manual (basically a large switch) or they may be automatic. The automatic type typically uses a magnetic contactor, using a concept similar to the electromagnetic relay described above. More recently, solid-state (electronic) starters have begun to be used, particularly on large motors such as those used on chillers.  Overload protection. Electric motors are not inherently self-limiting devices. The device they are driving may operate in a fashion that causes the motor to draw more current than it was designed to handle.
