The paper focuses on the procedure of designing one of the most important elements of an automation control system in multivariable technological process - The controller of the main fermentation process (one of the most important process of the beer manufacturing). We focus on the justification of the choice of the type of controller, which provides the most effective solution to control problems, determine its optimal settings, and the regulatory law. The parameters of the SISO (Single-Input Single-Output) and MIMO (Multiple – Input, Multiple Output) technological processes were analyzed to select the controller. Furthermore, the interrelations and interdependencies of the parameters of the technical process were analyzed. The obtained transfer functions of the heating and cooling sub-processes have been simulated with P, PI, PID controllers. We compared the values of the controllers; the PID controller has been selected. It provides the most effective solution of the multivariable process control tasks. The algorithm for controlling the multivariable process of the main fermentation of beer has been developed. The simulation of the controller and the definition of its operating parameters implemented in an integrated development environment “MatLab”.
