PID notes

Today I discovered that it is really important to keep good notes of PID tuning constants.


The most amazing discoveries are the rediscoveries. Today I discovered that to disable integrative control in the PID controller, I have to set the constant to +Inf, not to zero. Zero causes a 'divide by zero' error, which propagates through the program and causes uncontrolled processes.
