This is surprising since most processes that have to be controlled are fairly non-linear and it would seem that non-linearity in the process could surely be cancelled by 'opposing' non-linearities in the controller to give overall good control. Also, Nature is a well-known user of non-linear devices in most of its control applications, in, for instance, the human body, and we might reasonably expect control design to follow in this direction. 3 How feedback control works - a practical view The illustrations use temperature control and foreign currency exchange control but the results are valid for any feedback loop.
3 I A linear system consisting of a gain and integrator Frequency response of a linear system A linear dynamic system consists mathematically of the (repeated) operations: multiplication by a constant, differentiation, integration and summation, and of no other types of operation. Therefore the response of a linear system to a sinusoid must necessarily be also sinusoidal; wave shape and frequency both being invariant under linear transformation. 1. The input to the system is multiplied by a gain of 3 in the upper arm.
The output of the controller at any instant of time can be any function of the current and/or previous error signal that is read into the controller. ) 22 Control theory If linearity is now insisted on in the controller, then the possible control laws are severely restricted to be of the form: Present output of the controller = Some multiple of the present input + Multiples of the previous inputs ÷ Multiples of the previous outputs In other words, the present output of the controller is constrained to be just a weighted sum of present and past values of the input to and the output from the controller.
