Open Ended Problems

Suggest another mode or other change to the PID algorithm to improve performance.

PID Algorithm














Discuss the controller mode you use when you steer an automobile or bicycle?   Do you use any methods of control
other than feedback?

PID Algorithm

What do you do when you see a big bump ahead?

Is this feedback?









The PID controller was used many decades before digital computers were available for process control.  Devise a physical system (e.g. electric circuit) to perform the calculations.

PID Algorithm

Here is one of the modes; which mode?

Explain this mode.

Complete the picture with the other two modes.
