Control Systems PPT | PowerPoint Presentation | PDF: A system is a combination of number equipment or components connected in a sequence to perform a specific function. In a system, when the input quantity is controlled by varying the input quantity then the system is called as a control system. The meaning of control is to regulate or to direct or to command and therefore, a control system is an arrangement of distinct physical components connected in such a manner so as to regulate or to direct or to direct or to command itself or some other system.

In a control system, the variations in the output quantity are continuously through feedback and compared with the input quantity. The excitation signal given to the system is a reference input and the output quantity is called as a response.

Fig1: A Control System

The basic components of a control system are as below:

  • Plant
  • Feedback
  • Controller
  • Error detector

The combined unit or error detector, controller, plant, and feedback makes a complete automatic control system.

  1. Plant: The portion of a system which is to be controlled or regulated is called as plant or process. It is a unit where actual processing is performed and if we observe in the above figure, the input of the plant is the controlled signal generated by a controller. A plant performs necessary actions on a controlled system and produces the desired output.
  2. Feedback: It is a controlled action in which the output is sampled and a proportional signal is given to the input for automatic correction of any changes in the desired output. The output is given as feedback to the input for correction i.e. information about output is given to input for correcting the changes in output due to disturbances. The feedback signal is fed to the error detector. Negative feedback is preferred as it results in better stability and accuracy. The other disturbance signals are rejected.
  3. Error detector: The function of error detector is to compare the reference input with the feedback signal. It produces an error signal which is a difference of two inputs which are reference signal and a feedback signal. The error signal is fed to the controller for necessary controlled action. This error signal is used to correct the output if there is a deviation from the desired value.
  4. Controller: the element of a system within itself or external to the system which controls the plant is called as a controller. The error signal will be a weak signal and so it has to be amplified and then modified for better control action. In most of the systems, the controller itself amplifies the error signal and integrates or differentiates to generate a control signal. An amplifier is used to amplify the error signals and the controller modifies the error signal.

Open loop systems:

A system which is not capable of correcting the changes in output by itself is called as an open loop system. The diagrammatic representation of an open loop system is as below:

Open loop system

Fig2: Open loop system

Output quantity has no effect upon the input quantity; output is not given as feedback to the input for correction. When the output changes due to the external disturbances then it is not followed by the changes in input to correct the output.

Advantages of open loop system:

  • The open loop systems are simple and economical.
  • They are easier to construct.
  • The open loop systems are stable.

Disadvantages of open loop system:

  • The open loop systems are inaccurate and unreliable.
  • The changes in the output due to external disturbances are not corrected automatically.

Closed loop systems:

Control systems in which the output has an effect upon the input quantity in such a manner so as to maintain the desired output are called as closed loop systems. The open loop systems can be modified as closed loop systems by providing a feedback. The changes in the output due to disturbances are corrected automatically by using feedback. The diagrammatic representation of a closed loop system is as follows:

Advantages of closed loop system:

  • Closed loop systems are accurate.
  • They are accurate even in the presence of nonlinearity.
  • They are more stable.
  • They are less affected by noise.

Disadvantages of closed loop system:

  • They are complex and expensive.
  • The feedback in closed loop system may leave to oscillatory response.
  • More care is needed to design a closed loop system.
  • The overall gain of the system is reduced due to feedback.

Different examples of control systems:

Distinct examples of control systems are as follows:

  • Liquid level control system
  • Room temperature control system
  • Traffic control system
  • Home heating systems
