  • 1. Introduction to Control Loops and PID Control

    In this video, we will learn:

    - What a feedback control loop is and how it is constructed.
    - How a process reacts to a change in controller output.

  • 2. Process Reaction Curves and the PID Equation

    In the previous video, we learned:
    What a feedback control loop is and how it is constructed. How a process reacts to a change in controller output.

    In this video we will learn:
    How we can model the process using a First Order Process with Dead Time, or FOPDT, and
    The format of the Proporti...

  • 3. PID Controller Tuning Parameters

    In this video we will learn:

    1) How each term of the PID control equation affects a process controller in automatic mode.

    2) How the process reaction curve values of “process gain”, “dead time”, and “time constant” can be used to determine the tuning parameters for a PID controller.

  • 4. Tuning a PID Controller in Two Different Ways

    In the previous video, we learned:

    How each term of the PID control equation affects a process controller in automatic mode, and,
    How the process reaction curve values of “Process Gain”, “Dead time”, and “Time Constant” can be used to determine the tuning parameters for a PID controller.
