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
|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.
|The angle the motor controller will try to put the pendulum at, from 0 to 360 degrees.
|The initial angle of the pendulum, from 0 to 360 degrees.
|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).
|The length of the pendulum, in cm.
