If a control loop is oscillating, would it be best to increase or decrease the controller gain? The standard answer of decreasing the controller gain is right for a decaying or growing oscillation in a relatively fast self-regulating loop (loop whose PV quickly goes to a steady value when in manual and disturbances have dissipated). …
