PIC controller creator

The MathWorks has announced the availability of Simulink Control Design 3.0, equipped with new features that automate the process of tuning proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controllers.

These features are being released along with new PID Controller blocks in Simulink.

Engineers can use the blocks to create PID controllers, select PID structure, include integrator anti-windup logic, convert from continuous-time to discrete-time domain, and prepare the controller for implementation on a processor using fixed-point arithmetic.

A new tuning algorithm in Version 3.0 automatically calculates PID controller gains based on desired phase margin and system bandwidth.

A new user interface supports visual tuning of PID controllers for all types of plant models, without requiring expert knowledge of control theory.
