Re: PID Controller
The gain constants and integral term maximum are totally dependent on the characteristics of the system you are controlling. The following document gives a sense of how you can tune the constants to your system: http://www.ridgesoft.com/articles/balancebot/BuildingABalancingRobot.pdf (see page 6). There are also resources on the web which would provide insight. Here's one example: http://www.jashaw.com/pid/tutorial/index.html Try Googling for more.
