A self-tuning method is described for a simple discrete-time control algorithm presented in a previous paper. With self-tuning, the algorithm is a candidate for a new class of single-loop controllers that would be considerably more convenient to use than the present analog PID controllers. Experimental results are presented indicating the applicability of the tuning and control algorithms to typical, nonideal processes.
