Tuning a PID for a Sine Wave

greenspun.com : LUSENET : PID Controller Tuning : One Thread

I need to tune a PID controller to follow a sine wave as accurately as possible. Can you use the basic Zeigler-Nichols method in this situation?

Over what time period do you perform the tuning?

And what counts as continuous ocsillation. More than one complete cycle at the same amplitude?

thanks now.
