PID without a Ph.D.

I know there have been a ton of PID threads. But it is getting to be crunch time and I am sure that one more reference document will not go wasted.

I just came accross this simple paper from the great folks at www.embedded.com :: PID Without a Ph.D.

I think it is a good introduction with many graphs and very good implementation details. An excellent How To.

I have pieced together a printer friendly version of the paper -- PM me (include your e-mail address) and I will shoot you a copy (it is 21 pages including 18 nice figures)*.

FYI

Joe J.

*I hesistate to upload it because it is not my work and I think the guys from embedded.com deserve the traffic. Am no lawyer but I think sharing a printer friendly version falls within so called "fair use." Again, just PM me and I will save you a few minutes of cutting and pasting.

Re: PID without a Ph.D.

I've had a pretty good grasp on what PID and how it works for a while, but I read this paper about a month ago and I learned alot more about the internal mechanics of the the control loop.

This is a very good tool, thanks for bringing attention to it Dr. Joe!

Re: PID without a Ph.D.

Good post!

For those of you who know a pack rat and long time subscriber to Embedded Systems Programming/Embedded Systems Design, the article was originally published in the October 2000 issue starting on pages 86.

Sadly, I fall into that category and could find it on my shelf.

Re: PID without a Ph.D.

Shame on Me!

I did not search first.

Mike Shaul posted about this very article in this part of this thread

By the way, not only is does he post excellent messages, Mr. Shaul's has a great signature:

"By far the best proof is experience. - Sir Francis Bacon"

I am like a dog in this respect: I don't argue with Bacon ;-)

With that poor joke, I close this thread and refer folks to the thread earlier thread.
