ACD automatically calculates the parameters for well-known compensator types (P, PI, PD, PID) or alternatively for a generalized controller of user-defined order. The controller parameters are optimized with respect to a plant model and additional user options. The desired time-domain closed loop behavior is considered and may be defined graphically by a goal curve for the desired closed loop step response. Additionally, ACD provides the parameters for an ti-Reset-Windup compensator structure to avoid undesired windup effects of compensators with integral parts.
