Version 2 is out!
Try version 2!
Total separation of physical simulation, PID algorithm and GUI. The setup is intended to realistically mimic a physical body with a specific heat capacity, a measurement delay, and an input delay + low pass filter (heater delay) for more realism.
This is a simple PID simulator I wrote in .NET, created to get a feel of how to tune a PID by adjusting the various properties.
- pid-simulator-v188.8.131.52.zip contains the installer
- Real-time temperature graph
- Visualized power output and error (with color and bar size)
- Adjustable heat capacity
All the "thumbs down" are because there is no exe. Well, you don't need it and it works great.
