AN05: Thermal PI control

PI control is a simple and powerful control algorithm.  See the video below, that uses LArVa source code modified to include PI control code.




To learn more, download LArVa or view a video on Building a P controller.

This video shows how LArVa, an Arduino, Labview and less than $20 of additional hardware can be used to do simple thermal control.  This means that temperature can be input into the controller and the heater will drive the sensor to that temperature.
