PID values and how they affect performance (WSD-1501GPH)

Postby FishFilet » Tue May 16, 2017 12:21 pm

I recently purchased a WSD-1501GPH. I have read through the manual, including the section on PID parameters on page 12 of the manual. I am still not quite sure what each setting does and I would like an in-depth explanation of the P, I, and D parameters and what they do.

I think I have a pretty good idea of how the P parameter works but the I and D parameters remain unclear. I also wonder how the I and D parameters change the P parameter or how all three work together.

Thanks for posting your question here. Our manual provides some basic knowledge regarding the PID control and PID tuning. Parameter I accounts for past values of the error. It will continually sum the controller error, to adjust the output. Parameter D accounts for possible future trends of the error, based on its current rate of change.

PID is one of the important course in control engineering. Some links below will give you some idea:
