I'm working on a project that probably needs a PID controller. I'm naïvely guessing that's not so bad, but I'm trying to figure out if that's really the best tool for the job, knowing nothing at all about control theory. Can anyone recommend a good reference? Code/math-focused (instead of mechanically focused) is a definite plus.

Thanks!

Feedback Control of Computing Systems
By Joseph Hellerstein, Yixin Diao, Sujay Parekh, Dawn M. Tilbury

There are also a couple papers by Hellerstein that seem to pre-date the book.

I have the book out from the library, but I haven't made it past the first chapter over the past 6 months. This is the best thing I've run into so far.

Thanks for the tip! It turns out the "PID" can just be a series of averages and latches, so I'm probably going to do that and then attack the theory as soon as I can get to a library.

All of the controls theory books I've read were written by the insane. All of my controls professors were certifiable. Good luck.

I could call my project Nutter :)
