- Introduction to Feedback Systems and PID Control
- Proportional (P) Control
- Proportional-Integral (PI) Control
- Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) Control
- Implementing the PID Control Algorithm (Code Attached)
- Demonstration of PID Control (Propeller Arm Example)
- PID Tuning (Ziegler–Nichols method)
Learn the basics behind how a proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controller works and how to implement one on the Arduino hardware!
A PID controller is the most common feedback controller used in the industry, but they can also be used for hobbyist electronic projects such as quad-copters, self-balancing robots, temperature controllers, and much more! In this course, we will not be going into the classical control theory behind PID controllers, instead we will approach the controller intuitively so that it's role and implementation is practically understood.
The lecture series contains 7 lectures covering:
- Feedback Systems, P, PI, and PID Controllers
- Arduino Implementation and Live Demonstration (Propeller Arm Example)
- Heuristic PID Tuning
A template for the Arduino code will also be provided and explained in the series. In order to demonstrate the controller in real-time, a propeller arm example has been constructed. The live demonstration will be used to explain the behavior of the PID controller and how to tune one heuristically.
This course is suitable for any student, engineer, hobbyist, or maker who always wished to understand PID control in a easy intuitive manner; although a basic understand of electronics, C coding, and calculus is preferred. Having knowledge of feedback control prior to taking this course is also a plus!
After taking this course, you will not only understand PID control better, but you'll become a lot more comfortable with designing projects that involve feedback control.

Engineer and Electronics Hobbyist
My name is Nabil, I'm an engineer by day and hobbyist by night. I was born in New York, USA but raised in New Jersey my whole life. I hold a BSc and MSc in Electrical Engineering from Rutgers University and currently work as a full-time engineer.
Like many engineering students, I had a hard time understanding the theory and concepts intuitively, but once I was able to make some practical sense of it all, I wanted to share my knowledge with others (students, engineers, makers, DIY'ers).
My courses will mostly be design-based, in areas of: analog design, audio amps, control systems, power supply design and much more!
When I am not working or tinkering, you can find me playing the electric guitar, hitting the gym, or cooking.
This gives a very good intuitive feel for how a PID controller works.
I enjoyed this mini course, is very well explained. I'm using PID controller not on Arduino projects but for reliable 3D simulations and works great.
Just an amazing learning experience
So far, yes it is good. My Professor at the university went over PID control and it was not a good explanation compared to this one.
Seems a little too simple so far, would like to see more of the math
It's a relatively short course, but it's cover what I need which is a kick start for PID controller by using an Arduino.
bom!! porém muito muito rapido!!
Very Very Very good!
