What is Control System | Control System Definition

Control system is that means by Which any quantities of interest is maintained or altered according to the desired manner.

Contol System = Contol + System

The objective of any control system ensures that the control variable is same as command but if any disturbance is taking place then the control system deviates from its behavior to restore the control system to actual behavior an element called sensor.

Sensor is introduced in control system with the help of which the error in the response of the system compared to the given input can be reduced.


Through the sensor is the feedback element is introduced in control system to reduce the error in the response it affects several other characteristics of the system namely speed of the response, gain,  bandwidth, sensitivity etc.


The disturbance associated with the sensor cannot rectify and causes the permanent error in the overall response of the system.
