Thank you for using pidtuner. Looking at your data, it seems that your step test is not done correctly.
First, the input data does not seem correlated to the output data throughout the experiment, see slide 9 (“Common Mistakes …”) of the following presentation:
Second, it seems you are saturating your actuator, since the output looks like it achieves a constant growth speed instead of a natural growth curve. Maybe try a smaller step change.
Hope this information helps,
