Criteria and Trade-offs in PID Design

Olof Garpinger, Tore Hägglund, Karl Johan Åström


Control design is a rich problem which requires that many issues such as load disturbances and set-point responses, model uncertainty, and measurement noise are taken into account. These issues are discussed for design of PI and PID controllers. The purpose is to give insight into the different criteria and their trade-offs, not to give specific tuning methods.
