PID Control with PAC Control

PID Control with PAC Control

Using PID algorithms in your PAC Control control system

About this course

In this course, learn how to assess if a PID algorithm is practical for your system and how to configure a PID to meet your need.

Topics include:

  • PID Concepts
  • PIDs on groov I/O and SNAP PAC I/O Units
  • Quiz 1 (to test your knowledge about PID Concepts)

Setting Up a PID

  • Configuring a TPO PID Loop
  • Programming a TPO PID Loop
  • Configuring a PID Loop Using Analog I/O
  • Calculating the Scan Rate, P, I, and D Terms
  • Quiz 2 (to test your knowledge about setting up a PID)

Help with Tuning a PID 

  • Working with PIDs in Debug Mode
  • PID resources
  • Quiz 3 (to test your knowledge about tuning a PID & PID Resources)

Course Duration: 45 minutes
