PID Controller Auto-Tuning Methods

“PID auto-tuning” or “PID self-tuning” controllers are designed to simplify matters by choosing their own PID tuning parameters based on some sort of automated analysis of the controlled process’s behavior. Theoretically, the most basic PID auto-tuners simply automate the manual PID tuning procedures: force a change in the controller effort (bump or step tests), observe […]
