Design of measurement noise filters for PID control

Vanessa Romero Segovia, Tore Hägglund, Karl Johan Åström

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceedingpeer-review


This paper treats the trade-off between robustness, load disturbance attenuation, and measurement noise injection for PI and PID control using Lambda, SIMC, and AMIGO tuning. The effects of measurement noise are characterized by SDU, which is a measure of noise activity analogous to the IAE commonly used to characterize performance of load disturbance response. Simple design rules to choose the filter time constant for PI and PID controllers are
also given for the three tuning methods.
