Video lecture:

PID controller tuning with Ziegler-Nichols' oscillations method


Finn Haugen

15. March 2009

This video (24 minutes) describes the Ziegler-Nichols' oscillations method (or ultimate gain method) for PID controller tuning.

The video is based on the simulator temp_control.exe which is in the zip-file (You can run the simulator while watching the video.) Information about this simulator is available here.

The software needed to run the simulator is described here.
