MFA Control Toolset for NI LabVIEW™

What's New
What's the Big Deal
What's the Benefit
Embedded Model-Free Adaptive (MFA) controllers inside LabVIEW environment. An integrated control solution that leverages your investment in NI's products and software platforms. Offers NI users an enhanced control capability delivered as part of the LabVIEW solution.

Left: When MFA (top) and PID (bottom) start from the same oscillating control condition, PID will continue to oscillate while MFA will quickly adapt to an excellent control condition. Both MFA and PID are running in a FieldPoint device. Right: MFA controllers inside NI's PXI system.

Model-Free Adaptive Control
NI - MFA Product Options
Embedded MFA Inside LabVIEW
MFA controls the processes that are too difficult for PID controllers to handle. MFA is the only "No Model" advanced controller on the market that can control complex systems without the use of first-principle mathematical models or dynamic modeling based models. Once installed, no controller parameter tuning is required.

Better control means improved process stability, higher production efficiency and yield, consistent product quality, and reduced material and energy waste.
NI Platform


High-speed high-precision MFA
Ultra high-speed MFA at 25 µs
PXI High-speed MFA
FieldPoint or
compact FP
For lab and industrial use

Note: MFA VIs run inside LabVIEW and LabVIEW RT. Special VIs for FPGA

SISO MFA to replace PID to eliminate manual tuning,
Nonlinear MFA to control extremely nonlinear processes,
Anti-delay MFA to control processes with large time delays,
Robust MFA to force process variable to stay within defined bounds,
Feedforward MFA to deal with measurable disturbances,
MFA pH to control pH processes.

The Inside of Model-Free Adaptive (MFA) Control

MFA Features
Key Points
MFA Inside Story
Controls complex systems Adaptive
Adaptive weighting factors are updated in every sample interval to minimize error e(t).
Requires no precise process models Robust
Provides a wider robust range than PID and many other controllers.
Requires no process identification Speed
No time consuming model training; controls process immediately.
Requires no controller design Stability
Guarantees closed-loop stability for passive processes.
Requires no complicated manual tuning Ease of Use
Easy to configure, launch, and maintain.
