The ability of PI and PID controllers to compensate many practical processes has led to their wide acceptance in industrial applications. The requirement to choose two or three controller parameters is most easily done using tuning rules. Starting with a general discussion of industrial practice, the chapter will provide an outline of tuning rules for continuous-time PI and PID control of time-delayed single-input, single-output (SISO) processes.
