Control system engineering covers topics such as LTI systems and PID and other controllers.

There are several possible sites I might try and I can't make a good decision:

Can anyone advise me on how to chose between those four? I am asking about theoretical questions regarding control systems, that means questions that are NOT about using Matlab to simulate them or wiring them.

  • PID was something covered in the EE part of my curriculum so possibly EE.SE? Not sure about the theoretical aspect though (I'm not part of the EE.SE community).

  • PID and other control systems are quite not only used in electronics. For example I need one to calculate guided rocket control in my computer game - no electronics, but no programming either, I just have the LTI system and I§m trying to linearize it. Commented Apr 25, 2016 at 14:30
  • Yeah. I've never browsed Engineering but I'd vote for that one of the 4 communities you lists.

    Robotics perhaps? Though perhaps not if there's nothing physical involved.
