PID Control Made Easy – Part 2 2

Posted by Seth Popinchalk,

Happy New Year! Many people like to make resolutions at this time of year. They often take on ambitious and even difficult resolutions to accomplish some far off goal in 2010. Instead of doing something difficult, how about a resolution to make something easier?

Arkadiy Turevskiy previously presented an overview of the new blocks and tuning tools for PID controllers in R2009b. While I think his post accurately shows the details of how the PID tuning tools work, unless you do it yourself, it is hard to appreciate how easy it really is. Luckily, Arkadiy also recorded a short video to go with his post. While you watch the video, notice that he gets a proposed controller design with one click, applies it with a second click, and adjusts the response time using a slider in the tuning GUI.

Now that's easy

What are you resolving to do this year? What tool will you use to make life easier? Tell us about it in a comment here.
