Choosing a PID Controller Design Tool

Control System Toolbox™ software gives you several tools for designing PID controllers.

ToolWhen to use

PID Tuner

  • Automatic, interactive tuning of SISO PID controller in the feed-forward path of single-loop, unity-feedback control configuration.

  • Automatic, interactive tuning of 2-DOF PID controller in the loop configuration of this illustration:

  • Interactive fitting of a plant model from measured SISO response data and automatic tuning of PID controller for the resulting model (requires System Identification Toolbox™ software).

SISO Design ToolTuning PID controllers in any other loop configuration.

Command-line PID tuning

Programmatic tuning of SISO PID controllers.
