It really depends on the nature of the process.  I don't know of a way to tell an application to utilize no more than 30% CPU, but depending on what you are trying to accomplish by setting these limits you could use one of the following

Set low priority on the process so that other applications calls get run first

Process.GetCurrentProcess.PriorityClass = ProcessPriorityClass.BelowNormal
'default is normal

You can also strategically pause the process to lower cpu usage on long processes
System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.Sleep(50)'50 millisecond process sleep
