- 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.
It would be better to include some fundamentals on Control Principles. Great course.
Thanks man... you are great... thanks for sharing this knowledge...
The instructor has explained the subjeject of PID very well both theoretically and experimentally. it would be better if he also gave the hardware and software information he used.
I enjoyed this course, and very nice instructor. I find this course helpful for building mechatronics projects.
I didn't know anything about PID controllers and i started watching videos on youtube to understand. Without those videos I wouldn't be able to understand everything told in this course. It was kinda fast for people who don't know anything. I'm an engieneering student and I would've loved to understand the full math behind PID controllers and maybe more content about it. It does give you cool resources to iuntegrate it quickly with arduino, which is great, so I guess this course is just fine.
