Abstract: Applications of continuous production line technique is of vast use today when there is a high demand for mass production. One of the main disadvantages consists in high receptiveness to malfunctions since a single fault can stop or affect the quality of the entire production line. The paper presents an improved solution of (re)balancing a parallel control structure and maintaining the ratio between two adjustment quantities. Applicability is proved on a control structure of the ratio using two groups of tanks, a situation that has been encountered in the chemical industry, food industry, pharmaceutical industry etc. Meanwhile the proposed structure may represent an interesting solution that could be implemented within supervisory level.

Keywords: ratio control; control performance; control architectures; disturbance rejection, supervisory level.
