PID Theory Explained

Overview Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) control is the most common control algorithm used in industry and has been universally accepted in industrial control. The popularity of PID controllers can be attributed partly to their robust performance in a wide range of operating conditions and partly to their functional simplicity, which allows engineers to operate them in a simple, straightforward manne ...

Arduino PID Motor Controller

INTRODUCTION : The development of high performance motor drives is very important in industrial as well as other purpose applications.  Generally all high performance motor drives use quadrature encoders and PID control because of its simplicity and precise control.  The quadrature encoder acts as a feedback from the motor, it is connected to the microcontroller for furthur processing. With the use of Ardui ...
