A simple tuning method for second-order active disturbance rejection control (ADRC) that achieves high performance and good robustness for a wide range of processes is presented. ADRC is a novelcontrol strategy whose exciting performance has been shown by literatures. The proposed methodmakes ADRC become easy to tune and more practical. Once the desired settling time is given, only one parameter need to be tuned during the design procedure, which can be found by monotonously increasing. Examples are given to show the effectiveness and flexibility of the method. Simulations demonstrate that second-order ADRC can handles processes with various characteristics, including low- and high-order, large dead time, non-minimum phase, unstable and distributed parameter systems.
