    The wide application of proportional-integral-derivative (PID) control has stimulated and sustained the development and patenting of various tuning and associated system identification techniques. However, to achieve optimal transient performance, tuning methods vary, and at present there exists no standardization of PID structures. This article provides an overview and analysis of PID patents, co... View full abstract»

    This article presents some easily understood and applied methods for close-to-optimal tuning PI and PID controllers. By optimal it means good midfrequency robustness and the best possible tradeoff between output performance and control activity. For plants with all poles on the negative real axis, a simple step response can provide adequate plant knowledge. For plants with integral action, an impu... View full abstract»

  • PID tuning using extremum seeking: online, model-free performance optimization

    Extremum seeking (ES) tunes PID controllers by minimizing a cost function that characterizes the desired behavior of the closed-loop system. This tuning method is demonstrated on four typical plants and found to give parameters that yield performance better than or comparable to that of other popular tuning methods. Additionally, ES produces favorable results in the presence of actuator saturation... View full abstract»

    In this paper, a method for designing PID controllers to meet multiple frequency-domain inequalities (FDI) specifications on the open-loop transfer function in finite and semi-infinite frequency ranges is presented. The method, which is based on the generalized Kalman-Yakubovich-Popov (GKYP) lemma, enables direct loop shaping through LMI optimization without frequency gridding or weights. The resu...

    With its three-term functionality offering treatment of both transient and steady-state responses, proportional-integral-derivative (PID) control provides a generic and efficient solution to real-world control problems. The wide application of PID control has stimulated and sustained research and development to "get the best out of PID", and "the search is on to find the next key technology or met...

    This article discusses three important subsystems of the photonic LO reference distribution system for the ALMA radiotelescope. Each subsystem relies on specific control systems that allow ordinary components to be assembled to form a global system that is more accurate and stable than its individual components. By using appropriately designed loops, lasers with phase noise of many thousands of ra... View full abstract»

    The success of proportional-integral-derivative (PID) control in the process industry is based on the ability to stabilize and control around 90% of existing processes. This importance is overshadowed, however, by a lack of performance in some applications. It has been reported that a significant percentage of installed PIDs are operated in manual mode and that 65% of the loops operating in automa... View full abstract»
