The purpose of this thesis is finding the most effective temperature control strategy for use in drying units in drywall production factories. To accomplish this, the methodology used involves recognizing the mathematical model which describes this process. This was achieved with the help of input/output measurements of the process obtained in the Knauf. factory drying unit. Afterwards, the controller was configured using Lambda, Ziegler-Nichols and Cohen-Coon methods, which were applied consecutively to three possible scenarios of models and controllers. The results of these scenarios determine the ideal mathematical model which describes the process of the drying unit as well as the most effective method of configuring the possible controller.
