Have you heard about PID tuning and wondered if it can help your business? In this post, we’ll break down exactly would PID tuning is and explain how it is helpful to your business.
PID Tuning Defined
In basic terms, PID tuning is a process that helps you find the values of proportional, integral, and derivative gains of a PID controller. If you’re in need of PID tuning, you may already know what a PID controller is. For those who may not know, it is a control loop feedback mechanism that calculates error values between desired setpoint and a process variable, then corrects it based on proportional, integral, and derivative terms. Most commonly, PID controllers are used in industrial control systems.
Benefits of PID Tuning
While PID tuning can be difficult—due to the limitations of PID control—it can give you the following benefits:
- Helps you to maintain stable output
- Minimizes overshooting the setpoint
- Increases responsiveness
