Choosing a PID Controller Design Tool
Control System Toolbox™ software provides several tools for designing PID controllers for plants represented by LTI models.
The following table summarizes these tools and when to use them. For information about tuning PID controllers in Simulink® models, see Model-Based PID Controller Tuning (Simulink Control Design).
|Tool||When to Use||Get Started|
PID Tuner app
||Tune PID Controller to Favor Reference Tracking or Disturbance Rejection (PID Tuner)|
Command-line PID tuning using
||Tune PID Controller to Favor Reference Tracking or Disturbance Rejection (Command Line)|
|Tune PID Controller Live Editor task||Interactive tuning of 1-DOF and 2-DOF PID controllers and automatic code generation in a live script.||PID Controller Design in the Live Editor|
|Control System Designer app||Tuning PID controllers in any other loop configuration, such as cascades and other multiloop configurations||Getting Started with the Control System Designer|
