In this note, new tuning methods for Proportional-Integral (PI) are proposed for monotonic time delay systems. Like the Ziegler-Nichols method, the proposed technique requires only parameters obtained from the plant step response. Unlike conventional techniques, the resultant tuning parameters offer the advantage of obtaining stable response with prescribed dynamic behavior with relation to the maximum overshoot. The idea of the design is simple and relies on basics learned in an introductory control course.
