Many industries like pharmaceutics, plastics, food and confectionery, tobacco and cold storage, maintaining the humidity at the desired level is very important. The aim of this paper is to process the model and to design a controller for a dehumidifier to control the humidity at the desired set point. The air is humidified using a humidity chamber. This humid air which is the primary air is mixed with secondary air from the compressor and sent to the dehumidifier. The dehumidifier used here is a centrifugal separator. The humidity of the dehumidified air is measured using a sensor. The output signal of the sensor is compared to the set point. If the output measured exceeds the set point, accordingly the flow rate of the secondary air to the dehumidifier is varied until it reaches the desired set point .The model of the process is identified from the response of the process to the input signals. The controller is designed for the model obtained and the performance of the controller based on the time domain specification is compared.
