Video lecture:

PID controller tuning with the Good Gain method


Finn Haugen

15. March 2009

This video (18 minutes) describes the Good Gain method for PID controller tuning. (This method har similarities with the Ziegler-Nichols' Ultimate Gain method, but in the Good Gain method we do not seek to find the ultimate gain (which causes sustained oscillatiions in the loop) during as a part of the tuning procedure, but a good gain more directly, which is safer.)

The video is based on the simulator temp_control.exe which is in the zip-file (You can run the simulator while watching the video.) Information about this simulator is available here.

The software needed to run the simulator is described here.
