A second-order plus dead-time model is derived from the data used for the characterization of a self–regulating process with a view to its PID control. This modeling approach provides guidelines for the design of the controller and tuning relations are proposed which provide flexibility in the choice of the control system responses and guarantee of stability and robustness. These features are illustrated by simulation results.
