Understanding PID Control, Part 1: What Is PID Control?
From the series: Understanding PID Control
Explore the fundamentals behind PID control. Chances are you’ve interacted with something that uses a form of this control law, even if you weren’t aware of it. That’s why it is worth learning a bit more about what this control law is, and how it helps.
PID is just one form of feedback controller. It is the simplest type of controller that uses the past, present, and future error, and it’s these primary features that you need to satisfy most control problems. That is why PID is the most prevalent form of feedback control across a wide range of physical applications.
However, often when learning something new in control theory, it’s easy to get bogged down in the detailed mathematics of the problem. So, this video skips most of the math and instead focuses on building a solid foundation.
