Lecture 1

Control systems are used to maintain ------ (a) ------ conditions at their desired values by manipulating certain process ----b) -- of interest. Common example is the home heater. The control system on the hot water heater attempts to maintain the --(c) ---- in the tank at the desired value. Desired value also knows as ------ (d)----- or ------ (e)-------- .

The controller takes appropriates action by sending a signal to the ------ (f) ------, which provides an input to the process to return the controlled variables to the

set point. Closed- loop also called as ------ (g) -----

control, which the information about the system is “fed back” to a controller.

In contrast, an ----- (h) ----- -loop system is sometimes

said to be in manual mode as opposed to automatic

mode. The measurement signal is disconnected from

the controller and the controller output would have to be manually adjusted to change the value of the controlled variables. For the same home heater,

thermocouple is one of the examples for --- (i) ----- .

Validate whether the statements (i) to (v) below are TRUE or FALSE

a) The input signal gives information about the system

behavior.

Ans: ____________

b) When we consider a domestic oven, it is one of the

open-loop control systems.

Ans: ____________

c) The block diagram of two systems in series can be

converted as shown in figure below

Ans: ________
