Stephen's PID Presentation

PID and Control Loops Workshop

Control loops, and specifically PID’s, are a commonly used method of ensuring that a system is able to get to and maintain a value. They blend mechanical systems, electrical systems, code, and mathematics to create automated and functional systems like those found in thermostats, self-driving cars, robotic arms, and much much more.

In tonight’s meeting, Stephen walked us through the mathematics and theory of PID’s. He also showed us techniques for finding those critical P, I, and D constants, as well as figuring out how to apply this knowledge.
