I am building a analog PI controller for experimental purpose. I have variable POT for P and I controller. I would like to know how much the value of R has changed in P and I . How to do it?

- use a 10 turn pot with turn-counting dial
- use an ohmmeter

Well , not an ohmmeter. Some other method to detect resistance change in situ

Well, you can measure resistance is by applying a known current and measuring the voltage across the resistor; you know, like an ohmmeter. Or, you could use a voltage divider. Or a Wheatstone bridge. But I don't know of any way you can do this without some external circuitry. Maybe you can explain your circuit more, and why you want to measure this resistance.

Or, you could do something like use the resistor to adjust a voltage that controls P and I, and just measure that voltage.
