Trades people aren't much use because they don't know what's going on most of the time, though I am sure they could tune a PID. Academics will draw you a root-locus some of the time of course which is totally useless! You don't need fancy control algorithms for most small problems but for some (eg control of the Euro-fighter and missile guidance) the modern stuff does get used, so don't knock it. Amateurs are even using Kalman filters in embedded systems nowadays (for inertial measurement). In the 1970s these were Ph.D topics. >> > >Real men use a Nichol's chart >:-} > > ...Jim Thompson
I'm pretty sure PID is in there between Locksmithing and Small Engine Repair. Best regards, Spehro Pefhany -- "it's the network..." "The Journey is the reward" speff@interlog.com Info for manufacturers: http://www.trexon.com Embedded software/hardware/analog Info for designers: http://www.speff.com

Reminds me of when a ran my power mower over a sewer clean-out and bent the crank :-( Bought a new crank and piston assembly from Sears (this would have been around 1963) and put the thing back together. But I couldn't get it all to cinch up properly, so I started it up anyway, then tightened up the head, etc. Ran perfectly after that ;-) ...Jim Thompson -- | James E.Thompson | mens | | Analog Innovations | et | | Analog/Mixed-Signal ASIC's and Discrete Systems | manus | | San Tan Valley, AZ 85142 Skype: Contacts Only | | | Voice:(480)460-2350 Fax: Available upon request | Brass Rat | | E-mail Icon at http://www.analog-innovations.com | 1962 | I love to cook with wine.
