What you'll learn:
- Common control langauge.
- How to design a PID controller in software.
- What components of a PID controller should be used for various environments/problems.
In this course you'll learn how to implement a PIDcontroller in software. You will understand when the Proportional, Integral, and Derivative components of the controller should and shouldn't be used.
The physics of an elevator are simulated to allow you the opportunity to write control software and see how it performs. The simulator will also give you hands on experience with debugging and tuning a controller, two very important aspects for a real system.
