Lab 4: Quantitative PID Control
This is lab 4 of 6 in the course
Although manual tuning is a simple and effective way to tune the gains of a system, it requires expertise and knowledge of the device. Students will learn about quantitative methods that can be used to get close to optimal gains as a starting point, such as the Ziegler Nichols method, the Tyreus Luyben method, etc. In this lab, students will model the Quanser Aero as a second-order system, and the corresponding PID design by specification.
