PID Loop Tuning Tips Pocket Guide has been expanded. Now it includes both open and closed loop tuning procedures, in addition to the original reference material of the first version. This eight-page publication was created to give engineers a short easy-to-use guide to tuning PID loops, and it includes a reference section that summarizes many of the more common controllers available.
PID Control (proportional-integral-derivative) is by far the widest type of automatic control used in industry. Even though it has a relatively simple algorithm/structure, there are many subtle variations in how it is applied in industry. This has probably resulted in confusion for plant engineers and operators, who are happy to leave control loops in a sub-optimal configuration.
