This paper presents an interactive tool focused on the study of proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controllers. Nowadays, PID control loops are extensively used in industrial applications. However, it is reported that many of them are badly tuned. From an educational point of view, it is essential for undergraduate students in control engineering to understand the importance of tuning a control loop correctly. For this reason, the tool provides different PID tuning methods in the frequency domain for stable open-loop time-delay-free processes. The different designs can be compared interactively by the user, allowing them to understand concepts about stability, robustness, and performance in PID control loops. A survey and a comparative study were performed to evaluate the effectiveness of the proposed tool.
