PID autotuning lets you tune a PID controller in real time against a physical plant. If you have a code-generation product such as Simulink® Coder™, you can generate code that implements the tuning algorithm on hardware, letting you tune with or without Simulink in the loop. To get started, see How PID Autotuning Works.
PID autotuning lets you tune a PID controller without a parametric plant model or an initial controller design. Deploy the algorithm to tune a controller in real time for a physical plant.
To use PID autotuning, configure and deploy a PID autotuner block. The block injects test signals into your plant and tunes PID gains based on an estimated frequency response.
Use the PID autotuning algorithm to tune against a plant modeled in Simulink while the model is running.
Deploy the PID autotuning algorithm as a standalone application for real-time tuning against your physical system.
Run the PID algorithm against your physical plant while controlling the tuning process in Simulink.
