This paper presents an approach based on simulated annealing in order to tune a proportional-integralderivative (PID) controller for an attitude pitch control system. The PID controllers, thanks to their simplicity and efficiency, are widely used in industrial applications. Studies on designing these controllers have focused on new approaches such as simulated annealing in order to satisfy requirements for diversifying applications. The main objective is to minimize defined performance metrics for tuning the PID parameters. Simulations are done using MATLAB and Simulink. The obtained results are compared with the conventional tuning methods (Ziegler-Nichols, Chien-Hrones-Reswick, Approximate MIGO step response and Skogestad IMC). The results demonstrate that simulated annealing provides less overshoot than other methods and reduces the performance metrics.
