Effect of Controller Dynamics on Loop Performance Tips

Tuning has a profound effect on the practical limit to control loop performance. While the effect of execution time and filter time is often much less in comparison, these time settings can get the user into trouble depending on tuning and loop dynamics.  Here is a perspective, overview, and recommendations.

What is the Best Transmitter Damping or Signal Filter Setting?

A transmitter damping setting or signal filter setting that is too slow can not only degrade performance but also cause trips. Less understood is that a large filter setting can mislead operations into thinking the filter has helped rather than hurt the process.
