"This practical explanation helped me understand PID control better in two hours than a recent three-month theoretical course."

Dear Engineering Professional,

Has that PID controller that looks after your most important process always been a bit of a ‘black box?’

Have you Googled PID control and found that Wikipedia page with enough math to frighten Mr Spock?

Well Here Is Some Good News

My name is Finn Peacock, and I've been in the Control System Engineering game for over 12 years. Over those 12 years I’ve repeatedly been asked to explain how the PID controllers - on which million and billion dollar enterprises depend - actually work.

After a lot of false starts I finally came up with not just an analogy that explains PID control in plain English, but a series of thought experiments. The great thing about thought experiments is that they force you to VISUALIZE what’s going on. And as almost every engineer I’ve ever met has a highly visual mind - that means if you follow these thought experiments you should never forget these fundamental PID Control concepts.

I’ve assembled these thought experiments and visualizations into a highly condensed 22 page book called:

The Idiot’s Guide to the PID Algorithm

This crash course in the fundamentals of PID control uses the analogy of a car on a freeway changing lanes to represent the process under control and walks you through those easy to visualize "thought experiments" to cement the concepts in your mind.

It’s an idiot’s guide, not because I think you are an idiot (God forbid!), but because you don’t need any special expertise to understand it. (Although even if your math is better than Stephen Hawking, I reckon you’ll still find it clarifies things – I got a glowing testimonial from a PhD last week)

It is called a guide to the PID Algorithm because the PID Algorithm is at the heart of any PID control system. If you don’t understand what the algorithm does, you ain’t gonna fully understand PID control. Simple as that.

What this book is not.

This book simply gives you the best foundation you can have if you want to understand PID control: An intuitive understanding of the algorithm that does the controlling.

It does not teach you how to design a PID control system or build it, there are plenty of books around that cover that in great detail. What it does do is give you a great headstart when you start designing, building or tuning your PID Control System, because you will understand the beating heart of the entire system – the PID Algorithm.

This is My Promise to You

I have a very simple promise to make to you. If you don't feel you understand the PID Algorithm after reading this 22 page book, I want you to ask for a full and complete refund.

If you don't like it, or you don't feel that it explains the concepts at least as well as I've described, you get your money back

Simple as that.
