How about doing it the old analog way? Feed the output of the
PID controller to comparator together with a sawtooth signal.
That will give you a quite nice 0-100% PWM control.
I'm quite sure a similar solution is possible with a NE555 as well.
Of course, you would need to adjust the PID controller parameters
to accomodate for the new element in the control loop.
I pity people who can't find laughter or at least some bit of amusement in
the little doings of the day. I believe I could find something ridiculous
even in the saddest moment, if necessary. It has nothing to do with being
superficial. It's a matter of joy in life.
