The article focuses on the Lambda tuning method. It is noted that Lambda defines a control loop's closed-loop response which is determined by performing open-loop step tests to identify the process dynamics and simple equations are being applied that determine the controller tuning to produce the desired response. It also defines the time until the process variable has ended changing in response to a controller output change.
