The salient posts and comments have been collected and are now available in the PID Tuning Discussion & Notes page on this blog.

Wikipedia has a good article and info on PID control and tuning as well as additional resources.  It focuses however on the “parellel” form of the PID equation rather then on the classical (also called the “standard”) form of the PID equation.   The behavior of these 2 forms can be quite different when attempting to tune them.
