PD (Proportional Integrated Derivative) controllers applied to temperature regulation in a rapid thermal processor are first presented. The setting method of the control parameters together with the corresponding experimental results is given. Evidence in favour of parameter dynamic adjustment is demonstrated. A new algorithm based upon parameter scheduling and providing enlarged control capability is then presented and tested with various wafers and processors. At last insights about closed loop self-tuning using Generalized Predictive Control algorithm are given and the corresponding results discussed. 1.
