A PID Loop is a control feedback loop. "PID" stands for Proportional, Integral, and Derivative -- the three terms of the loop. With this website, you can simulate the effects of a PID loop on a motorized pendulum
|Parameter Name||Parameter Value||Description|
|P Term Gain||The gain factor for the proportional term.|
|I Term Gain||The gain factor for the integral term.|
|D Term Gain||The gain factor for the derivative term.|
|Goal Angle||The angle the motor controller will try to put the pendulum at, from 0 to 360 degrees.|
|Initial Angle||The initial angle of the pendulum, from 0 to 360 degrees.|
|Pendulum Weight||The weight of the pendulum, in kg.
All weight is assumed to be in the center of the weight (none in the shaft connecting it to the motor).
|Pendulum Length||The length of the pendulum, in cm.|
