MARQUEZ, David A  and  CARDENAS, Oscar O. Implementation of a Virtual Laboratory for teaching PID Controller. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2008, vol.19, n.3, pp.75-78. ISSN 0718-0764.

The objective of this work is to develop a teaching tool, which allows variations in the parameters of the controller to see the influence they have on the stability of this process, with the aim of teaching process control using the computer. In the cases studied the values of the parameters were first fixed and then the students are allowed to change them both in the controller and in the process, to analyze their effects. The tests conducted showed the advantages and disadvantages of the use of this type of controller in a particular process. The experience gained with the students was satisfactory and the concepts were well understood by the students, in particular the type of changes that need to be introduced to reach stability of the control system.
