Control Systems Engineering Experts

Control systems engineering is a critical discipline when it comes to automation. As a control systems engineer, we are responsible for developing, designing, and managing electrical control systems in manufacturing. It’s important to note that control systems have become a vital component of manufacturing processes. There are eight types of Control Systems:

  1. Open-Loop Systems
  2. Closed-Loop Systems
  3. Linear Control Systems
  4. Nonlinear Control Systems
  5. Analog Control System
  6. Digital Control System
  7. Adaptive Control System
  8. Optimal Control System

Control systems are an integral part of manufacturing processes, with interconnected components called a system. The system has multiple outputs and inputs, and when this number varies, it is referred to as a control system. The control system measures the output quantity and uses a command signal to adjust the input quantity. To learn more, please see a brief description of the most common types of control systems.

Summary of Types of Control Systems

Control systems are used to manage and regulate various processes and machine functions. Therefore, the control system engineer must understand the different types of control systems, which is essential in selecting the best system suitable for specific applications and achieving desired control objectives.

In an open-loop control system, the output is determined only by the input signal or reference signal as the system does not have feedback.

In contrast, a close-loop control system has a feedback mechanism that allows it to adjust its output based on the error signal.

Linear control systems feature a linear relationship between the input and output and can be analysed using mathematical techniques such as transfer functions.

Nonlinear control systems have a nonlinear relationship between input and output and require more complex analytical techniques like numerical simulations.

Analog control systems are vital in situations where there is a need for high accuracy and real-time response. 

On the other hand, digital control systems process discrete-time signals and provide advantages such as precise control, flexibility, and robustness.

Adaptive control systems adjust their parameters or control laws to improve performance and cope with variations in operating conditions.

Optimal control systems aim to optimise a performance criterion and employ mathematical optimisation to determine control inputs that will yield desired performance.

Implementation of the Process

Whether a company wants to implement a simple electrical control system or combine them with the process of the automation system, there are many benefits of implementing industrial control systems in your process. Basically, it doesn't matter what application you are using. As a matter of fact, use the solution that fits you best.

Control automation systems play an important role in manufacturing. Therefore, industrial automation optimises factory machinery. For example: conveyors, HVAC, and SCADA systems just to mention a few. Hence, all automated manufacturing processes are controlled electronically. Following, you can find the top 6 Electrical Control Systems.

What type of electrical control systems are you looking for?

  1. Manual or On/Off Control: The operator is responsible for starting or switching on/off the system and controlling the positions, such as the On/Off switches for lights.
  2. Semi-Automatic Control: After being initiated by the operator, some operations are automatic. Units are controlled step-by-step as opposed to continuously.
  3. Automatic Control: The system operates in automatic mode, and a controller monitors and takes any necessary actions via feedback loops.
  4. Remote Control: Devices can be monitored and operated from a different location than the control system.
  5. On/Off Control: The regulating unit can only be in one of two positions available: ‘on’ or ‘off’. A good example is the on-off switch for lights.
  6. Step-by-Step Control: The regulating unit can occupy more than two positions, but the action is taken in steps rather than continuously.

Control Systems Engineering

A Control Systems Engineer is responsible for putting together a design that fills out the needs of a production process to monitor and control the system. After that, the control system engineer develops and implements solutions. For example, the system is able to control temperature and speed.  Also, they evaluate the possibility of certain environmental conditions based on the process. 

In addition, the control system engineer integrates all elements of the control systems, and robotic arms (when needed) to ensure consistent quality in production.

  1. In-depth knowledge of the control systems
  2. Designing and developing control systems solutions
  3. Identify the right components suppliers
  4. Overseeing suppliers’ installations to ensure they meet the specification required
  5. Energy-efficient operations
  6. Developing hardware and software for control equipment
  7. Reduced automation infrastructure cost
  8. Maintaining, and upgrading existing control systems
  9. Managing the installation of the automation equipment
  10. Expertise in programming PLC, HMI, and Robotics, if needed
  11. Ensuring the control system works safely and efficiently
