This series provides an introduction to proportional-integral-derivative (PID) control.
PID is just one form of feedback controller, and it can be fairly easy to understand and implement. 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 for a wide range of real applications.
Often, when learning something new in control theory, it’s easy to get bogged down in the detailed mathematics of the problem. So this series skips most of the maths and instead focuses on building a solid foundation.
