PID Tutorial C code Example Pt/2
In this PID tutorial C code example Pt/2, the basic concept of a Boost PID controller will be explored. All the PID controller C code is stepped through, as well as some basic concepts for testing and tuning the controller. The final C code example can be downloaded via the link at the end of the article.
PID Tutorial C code Example Pt/1
In this PID tutorial C code example Pt/1, the basic concept of a PID controller will be explored. The full example code is implemented on a Stellaris LM3S6965 microcontroller, and is used to control a simple boost converter circuit, regulating the voltage with a change in load resistance. The boost circuit is not covered in-depth in this tutorial, but the fundamentals of a boost circuit are covered.
