In a pressure process control system when the system is loaded or when the load is released from the system, there will be a change in the system response form. Changes in the form of the response because the load or release of the load changes the dynamics of the system. In the controller industry commonly used are conventional PI or PID. However, due to the large variations in load, the PID controller is unable to meet the specifications. Adaptive settings are one of the regulatory methods in which controllers can respond to modify their behavior due to changes in dynamics due to loading and characteristics of interference. Self-Tunning Regulator (STR) is an adaptive arrangement scheme. Parameter estimation is one part of STR. In this paper the implementation of STR with parameter estimation using the neural network approach (NN STR) is carried out on the pressure regulation system in the Process Rig 38-741. The test results showed that the nominal load condition of NN STR with learning rate = 25 had the closest performance to the design results with a overshoot value of 23.7% and the settling time of 283.8 seconds was in accordance with the specifications of the desired range. In testing with the condition of changes in NN STR load with a learning rate = 20 shows the best performance against all the criteria used. While for testing the nominal load on the variation of NN set-point STR with learning rate = 10 shows the best performance on all the criteria used.
