This paper demonstrates a number of PI controller tuning methods being used to tune a temperature controller for a real air heater. Indices expressing setpoint tracking and disturbance compensation and stability margin (robustness) are calculated. From these indices and a personal impression about how quick a method is to deliver the tuning result and how simple it is to use, a winning method is identi ed.
