PID Control Made Easy

Arkadiy Turevskiy, MathWorks

PID control is ubiquitous. While simple in theory, design and tuning of PID controllers can be difficult and time consuming in practice. The webinar will start with a quick theory primer on PID control. MathWorks engineers will then introduce a simple and straightforward way to quickly design, tune, and implement PID controllers.

Through demonstrations, you will learn how to:

  • Identify plant transfer function from measured input-output data
  • Automatically tune single-input single-output PID controllers in MATLAB and Simulink
  • Implement output saturation and  anti-windup protection
  • Automatically tune complex multi-loop, multivariable systems consisting of multiple PID controllers
  • Deploy controllers by automatically generating code

About the Presenter: Arkadiy Turevskiy works in the technical marketing group at MathWorks supporting Simulink and control design products. Prior to joining MathWorks he worked at Pratt & Whitney where he developed control systems for large aircraft engines.
