This appendix describes three programs included in the website for this book:

  1. POLYID is a MATLAB program to identify a DFIR model for an SISO process using the polynomial identification procedure outlined in Section 16.2.

  2. MODELBUILDER is a menu-driven program to develop an FOPDT model, given input/output data. It uses POLYID software.

  3. PIDTUNER uses the FOPDT ...
