Questions related to Control Systems

I have used Casadi in interpreter mode and through mex file. However, the script is not very flexible, especially when the control problem involves tracking of an arbitrary reference signal. Have anyone tried ICLOCS, Acado or other tools in Simulink? Kindly share your experience.

I already saw some examples of GA (genetic algorithm) applications to tune PID parameters, but I (until now) don't know a way to define the bounds. The bounds are always presented in manuscripts, but they appear without great explanations. I suspect that they are obtained in empirical methods.

Could Anyone recommend me research?

Please suggest the most useful of software on Linear Matrix Inequalities to solve Fuzzy control systems?

Please explain, what is the importance to introduce the disturbances in the process?

Also explain, why most of the disturbances in the process are commonly represented by an impulse function? provide me reference also.

We know that robot pose errors are very common and that robot trajectories are pre-constructed and generated from CAD models in machining scenarios. However, for the trajectory points, there are inherent errors, and we need to compensate for the position and attitude of these trajectory points.

The existing off-line compensation is very common, but it lacks real-time, and the compensation objects are all the results obtained from pre-experiments. In fact such compensation, in a new experiment, the whole process is different from that of the pre-experiment because of the compensation done, so the final compensation also all stay at the level of being able to improve the performance, and theoretically such compensation is also all incomplete.

**How to compensate for the new point errors based on the information obtained in real time, and update the point information of the generated trajectory in real time？**

My robot is an ABB, and it would be great if you could offer some advice on the

**robot control system**,**transmission of data**,**branching of the perception model**, etc. Thanks to all the researchers who discussed and replied.

Especially for industrial/process control systems, there is a lot of resistance to having historized data stored in the cloud as it is seen as much less secure. Is this perception correct and if so is there any evidence for it?

Hi guys, I am simulating a horizontal axis small scale wind turbine using Ansys Fluent. In order to validate the manufacturing data, I vary the wind speed and its corresponded angular velocity, but unfortunately the obtained results exceeds the experimental ones especially in high wind speeds (15m/s). According to the wind turbine manufacturer the turbine have a pitch control system, but there is no information about the used pitch angle in the experimental results. What must I do in this case? Can I choose the pitch angle that gives the same results as experimental ones ?

Thank you.

Hi

I am trying to learn control systems for job opportunities.

I have some background bu rather to start from zero and go from there to to infinity and beyond

Also need to work on my matlab coding abilities for this

What are your suggestions?

I am trying to get bode plot for a boost converter with closed loop control. if the input output signals were a certain waveforms, than their phase difference would be easily calculated but in this case how do i determine the phase (lag or lead) for the given frequency? is it related to sampling period of the control loop and how much time would it take to bring the change to output after a certain change in input has been done?

Is it sampling frequency of control loop or some kind of resonance frequency of the system ??

Usually, we analyze the observability of a system through an observability matrix. For example, for a VO/VIO system, we can calculate its observability matrix according to its state space equation and analyze its unobservable dimensions: monocular VO is 7, monocular VIO is 4; however, for the monocular VO based on the optimization method, we can also get its unobservable dimension of 7 by calculating the zero space of its Hessian matrix. Is there any connection between them?

I am working on the real data of the physical property. I have gotten the bode plot data (I am working on frequency domain data). I have tried to identify the data and get the model. But the fitness is very low (40%).

When I checked using state space identification with 10 state, I got a better result around 80%. But the requirement is I have to use second order system.

My question is, how to increase the fitness score of my model with the limitation I have to use second order system?

PID controller is one of the most techniques that are used to improve control system operation, now with control valve how PID controller achieves practically?

**Which SCI/SCIE journals publish work in the field of control systems with a high acceptance rate and also respond fast?**

I made a PID-based control system and now am asked to augment my finding with a prototype. What this prototype refers to? Should I make a total system in Matlab or I will have to implement it physically?

I want to implement Fuzzy Control in an actual production process based on S7-1200 PLC , I have simulated the fuzzy control system in Matlab .But ,When i want to programe the PLC code using Siemens TIA Portral software,

**I found the fuzzy inference and defuzzication is difficult to programme**. I have read many articles and papers disscusing fuzzy control based on PLC, they all omited the key step ,that is how to programme the fuzzy inference and defuzzication, so i still confused about that. I am very long for someone to be able to give me some help or share me some fragments of the PLC code related to this question.My E-mail: 22060897@zju.edu.cn

Thanks for all reading my question!

In control theory, using Routh array test, it can be established that a quadratic polynomial

p(x) = a x^2 + b x + c (where a > 0)

is a Hurwitz polynomial (i.e. it has roots with negative real part) if and only if a > 0, b > 0 and c > 0. In an equivalent way, this can be proved using Hurwitz determinants.

I am looking for a simple proof for this fact. Without loss of generality, we can assume a = 1.

For p(x) = x^2 + b x + c, we can use the root finder formula and discuss various cases.

Is there any simple proof? I welcome your ideas and suggestions. Thank you!

I'm looking for a exhaustive paper (or book) regardind a four (or two) wheeled robot trajectory control system in order to reproduce and fully understand the kinematics and control system equations.

My rover has four motor, one for wheel, and turns through a wheel speed control.

Would be amazing find the PID control design on the angle and speed control as well as the trigonometric equations of the robot trajectory.

Thank you very much

Dear researchers

What is your opinion about the criterion recommended in seismic codes for determining scaling period, which are used to scale ground motion records?

As you know, the mentioned criterion is the period of the structure’s dominant mode, which has the largest modal participating mass ratio (usually the first vibration mode). Hence, the period of the mode with the second largest modal participating mass ratio is not considered in the scaling process. Consequently, although this criterion usually results in the largest value of scaling period, it is not logical ones.

This is especially important when Tuned Mass damper (TMD) or Base-Isolation system is utilized, which cause the modal properties of the structures to change.

I used a new criterion based on the weighted mean value of the periods for the structures equipped with TMD.

Have you used any criteria other than the criterion mentioned in the seismic codes?

Hi

How can i correct this error?? I think it's about matrix dimensions for port e.

Error in default port dimensions function of S-function 'FeedbackLinearization/Controller'. This function does not fully set the dimensions of output port 2

I'm running a simulation based on feedback linearization control method that comes from a paper attached below.

the model is also attached.

Anyone help me, helps a poor student. (if it makes sense lol)

hi every one

I'm trying to test my protection algorithm with an on-grid PV system (at least 2 parallel strings containing minimum of 4 modules per string).

I would appreciate if anyone can provide me a test simulation file ( matlab is preferred) with its full control system (with mppt)

I have to compare five level MLI in term of efficiency and THD which has less number of switches.

hello,

i work on a controlled Microgrid and i want to test the robustness of my controller againt a white noise that may be added to the output or the input. Is there is any specific condition to follow in order to take a good choise of a noise power ? or it is somthing random ?

- Actually i tried to take it about 3% of the nominal measurement value, is this enough to be good choice ?

- in addition, i tried the two types of noises, but i noticed that the one applied on the output affects much more the system than the one applied on the output (in such a way, my system looses its stability with the output noise, but gives an acceptable performance with the input noise ) , is this reasonnable ? if yes, why ?

thank you in advance

Hi Everyone. what are the hot topics for a theoretical and practical PHD research in control systems. It would be nice if you recommend some, with mentioning some related works through these years.

How can I effectively construct one state-space description, which is in fact a combination of multiple individual state space descriptions? Algebraic relationships between state-variables and input signals, will lead to off-diagonal terms in the resulting state-space matrix. For small systems this can easily be done by hand, but how can this be done effectively for larger systems?

To clarify my question:

suppose there are 2 state-space descriptions: \dot{x}_1 = A1(x1,t) x1 + B1(x1,t) u1 and \dot{x}_2 = A2(x2,t) x2 + B2(x2,t) u2, which are interconnected as described by the algebraic equation: f(x1,x2,u1,u2)=0. How can these two state-space descriptions be integrated efficiently to one big \dot{x} = A(x,t) x + B(x,t) u?

The resulting state-space description will be used for stability analysis purposes. Maybe it is better to analyze DAE system descriptions in order to analyze the stability?

It would be especially helpful if there are any symbolic methods, which also allow for nonlinear state-space descriptions.

If you can provide me with some good references, this would be a great help.

Thanks in advance.

LQR based control system is offline because it is computed once before running of simulation or experiment.

As input-output data we use LQR based optimal control system applied to motor speed tracking application. We would like to estimate K optimal gain based Moorse-Penrose pseudo -inverse derivation. So, this control system is not based on the model, therefore A,B matrices are unknown. Model is black box.

Except the Neural Networks based control system, I would like to know whether it possible to implement online control system when estimated K optimal gain matrix will be updated each instant (each cycle).

Dear friends:

In some calculation in control theory, I need to show that the following matrix

E = I - (C B)^{-1} B C

is a singular matrix. Here, B is (n X 1) column vector and C is (1 X n) row vector. Also, I is the identify matrix of order n. So, the matrix E is well-defined.

I have verified this by trying many examples from MATLAB, but I need a mathematical proof.

This is perhaps a simple calculation in linear algebra, but I don't see it!

Any help on this is highly appreciated.. Thanks..

I want to know that the junctionless GAA MOSFET is used for creating induced source and drain through charge plasma concept but can that junctionless bar of semiconductor be fully intrinsic or it has to be fully doped.

Do we used intrinsic junctionless bar or lightly doped bar for creating induced source and drain?

Can someone explain it in simple words?

Hello, Can we find Kp, Ki, and Kd values of PID, Lead-lag, or Type2/Type3 compensator? I have designed a type2 compensator for my system but now I need a PID controller for the same system can I access Kp and Ki values from the Type2 compensator? Please guide me

We use many mathematical models and state-space models in digital control systems. Before applying these concepts in real life scenarios, how useful (or less useful) it is to do a simulation in MATLAB?

Hi everyone,

I'm currently designing a control system for a swimming pool. Could you please suggest a sensor which can be used to measure the concentration of chlorine in the pool?

Thanks in advance :)

I get some negative vibe from the internet saying root locus is limited to education instrument to study pole and zero in s-plane which then forgotten after the university study. Does this suggest it a useless instrument for control system engineering in industry or alike. I have seen many bode plots and Nyquist analyses from the electronics arena by Analog Device or Texas Instrument website and app notes. Not so much on root locus design (and analysis).

Based on Nise Control System (now on Chapter 11), I gather zero can be placed close to the pole to mitigate the dominant pole to improve transient or steady-state error or both (Darth Vader versa Jedi battle there). I have seen a few comments that pole-zero cancellation is not a practical solution due to system tolerance and drift, is this a realistic issue for an electronic system, given that component's tolerance and precision, could be more precise than some mechanical systems?

I have come across some Nonlinear Control System problems where I need to implement Matlab code but unfortunately, it's getting too tough to start with. I can some of the problems such as,

1. Population Dynamics using Lotka–Volterra differential equations.

2. Continuous Stirred Tank Reactor (CSTR) using van–der–Vusse

reaction scheme.

3. PI Controller for Linear and Nonlinear system

So I'm in my first year Masters program, with option in Automatic Control systems. When I look up research topics, I see plenty ambiguous topics , twisted and I wonder how this topics are formulated or is there a pattern and people are improving on them.

I currently still cannot come up with a topic to work on.

My interest is in control systems engineering and it should address industrial challenges.

I don't want to choose what won't be of importance and impact.

Your input will go a long way to help me decide on what to work on.

Hello !

Was trying to build interleaved PFC architecture in simscape but getting the error (attached) "The following inductors are connected together " after switching has started.

Some matlab answers say its inherent issue. any one can help how to solve it ?

Thanks in Advance

As I know, the ordinary differential equation (ODE), xdot= -x^3+u, where x is the state variable, and u the control variable, is the control system associated to a falling object in atmosphere with viscous drag. I am not sure to be correct on that! Please comment on that!.

**Update 1**: xdot= -x^3+u, is called the hyper-sensitive system.

c.f.: A Collection of Optimal Control Test Problems: John T Betts.

Another example is velocity control for aircrafts in horizontal flight, which has an ODE evolution:

xdot=-x^2+u. Notice the attachment picked from:

Optimal Control with Engineering Applications; By: Hans Peter Geering.

I want to also know the real model associated to the control system described by the ODE: xdot= x^3+u. I guess more probably, this is associated to electrical systems.

**Update 2:**My own intuition says, positively damped systems as:

x_dot+x^3=u

are mechanical. Meanwhile, negatively damped systems as:

x_dot-x^3=u

are electrical.

You can yourself find some other examples in this regard.

Greetings All,

I'm a MSc in Electrical Engineering Student and interested in Control System, anybody has an Idea of Theses Title for Control System where I can implement the concept of AI?

Thanks and Regards.

Hi,

I'm trying to optimize a PI controller for a MIMO system called Vinante–Luyben (VL). I need to introduce a stable region to algorithm in order to have a reasonable search space. Do you know any paper or publications which has done it before so i can check if i didn't make any mistake?

(I found two stable for g11 and g22 as figure but it's not working some how)

Thank you for your helping

Hi all, I have a question for Control system development specialists.

I compute controllability of linear system through MATLAB function ctrb, and I know that system have 1 uncontrollable state. How to define which state is uncontrollable?

Dear friends:

While one can easily write an *.m file for implementing a sliding mode control,

for example, to stabilize a control system, integral sliding mode control is also

a popular scheme and used in many papers.

I like to know how to write an *.m file for implementing integral sliding mode control?

I like to kindly request Sliding Mode Control (SMC) experts to illustrate this control

and MATLAB code with a simple example of a control system on the plane (with twostates x1, x2) and how to set up the integral sliding mode control in MATLAB.

Thanks a lot!

With best wishes, Sundar

T1 =

----------------------------------------------------------

0.0008762 s^2 + 0.09793 s + 2273

T2 =

2.447e07 s^2 + 7.695e11 s + 2.687e13

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2.483e-05 s^4 + 77.99 s^3 + 1364 s^2 + 3.142e06 s

Screen shots of Bode plots for the above transfer functions are attached with respective file names. Yes, I was taught in control system course that both the Gain Margin (GM) and Phase Margin (PM) should be positive for a stable system, but the bode plot of T2 shows that the system is stable even with negative GM. Therefore, I intrepreted this as the system is unstable only when its phase is equal to ± 180

**°**at its open loop gain of unity. Because, only at this condition the closed loop gain becomes infinity.However, my interpretation goes wrong with the system function T1, where both GM and Phase Margine (PM) are negative but its phase is not equal to ± 180

**°**at its open loop gain of unity.Recently I have designed a automated gas leakage detection system using IoT. Now I want to analysis it further. What is the process to design/summarize it's control system.

I have the nonlinear systems of Khalil, however some definitions are no so clear, is there a newer book with Matlab examples

Hello everybody

Despite a few TMD cost models available in the literature, I am searching for more accurate initial and lifetime cost models of translational TMDs for Life Cycle Cost Analysis (LCCA) of TMD-equipped structures.

In fact, the provided cost model affiliated with one of the companies designs and manufactures transitional TMD (such as LeMessurier CO.), which this model consists TMD initial cost (construction and installation of the TMD) and TMD damage cost (maintenance and repair losses of TMD before structural collapse)

I design feedback close loop system with a robust static feedback controller using Hinf approach where control low is u(t)=Kx(t). What is the good method to show robustness for this type of system? What plots we can make to show robustness for designed system?

We all have been accustomed to see a block diagram for a linear control system, where in the forward path, first sits the controller, then actuator, and then plant.

What if we flip the blocks of actuator and plant. I mean what if we place plant before actuator?

We know that, the closed-loop transfer function does not depend on the consecutive order of blocks in forward path, since: C(s)/R(s)=G(s)/(1+G(s)H(s)), where G(s) is the forward-path gain and H(s) is the feedback-path gain (sensor). The forward path gain could be decomposes as:

G(s)=Gcontroller(s)*Gactuator(s)*Gplant(s).

Therefore, since these transfer functions in forward-path are multiplied, then it does not differ what are their consecutive order.

Hence, let's flip the plant and actuator blocks in the forward path: G(s)=Gcontroller(s)*Gplant(s)*Gactuator(s).

What happens next? Nothing about the stability, but a great revamp of the required embedded system and controller design. Because instead of measuring plant out-put to send it into the feedback path, we only need to measure actuator out-put which is more convenient through the control engineering practice. In other words, we have mixed controller and plant blocks together, to establish a new controller which physically controls the actuator.

For stabilization, I think it works well. For example, assume an aircraft autopilot (controller). Through this revamped controller design, instead of measuring and regulating aircraft states as pitch-rate, we only measure and regulate actuator (elevator) deflection. If we can stabilize the elevator angular position to stay at zero, then we have stabilized the aircraft at a level-flight (stabilization), since zero elevator-deflection means level flight has been sustained.

For command following (not stabilization), we may set a mathematical trick as:

G(s)=Gcontroller(s)*Gactuator(s)*[Gplant(s)/Gactuator(s)]*Gactuator(s),

in this way, even for the case of command following (control) we still need to only measure actuator output.

Advantage:

- in the classical loop, we use actuator model as a software block in the controller simulation and design, while using plant as a hardware to be regulated by physical sensing of its output.

-in my revamped controller setup, we use plant model as a software block in the controller simulation and design, while using actuator as a hardware to be regulated by physical sensing of its output.

It seems physically sensing and regulating actuator dynamics, would be much convenient than physically sensing and regulating plant dynamics.

Please share with me, your comments and ideas about my plan.

I want to find PID parameters to regulate my system.

I want to know all the things related and necessary which help me in control system field.

Dear researches

In general, the value of modal participating mass ratio (MPMR) for each vibration mode represents the participation of each mode in the structural responses.

when a structure equipped with TMD, a vibration mode is added to the others. MPMR value of the added vibration mode can be significant even when TMD mass is very small and as a result, TMD has no effect on the structural responses.

How can this contradiction be justified?

Dear fellow researchers, I would be obliged if anyone of you could kindly advise me on the amount of the publication fees for the Journal of Advanced Research in Dynamical and Control Systems (1943023X).

JazakAllah and thank you very much.

What is the significance of a bode plot obtained by the load disturbance transfer function G(s)/(1 + G(s)C(s))? I have two control systems and have attached the bode plot of both. The time response of the one controller is better than the other one. But how to conclude this from the frequency response? (The better controller's frequency response is shown in red color). How does a bode plot justify that the red one is better than the other in disturbance rejection?

Dear researchers

I can model tuned mass damper (TMD)in opensees platform. Now I want to model active mass damper (AMD) in opensees. So, how can I model its auxiliary equipment including sensors, control computer systems and actuator?

The plan is to control an average power generator speed to achieve a MPPT strategy.

I have the transfer function of MPPTC obtained by the dynamic modeling of MPPTC. I am trying to design the control system for MPPTC to be used for Cubesat application. Any help will be highly appreciated.

Please i need recommnedation on texts or literature that can improve my knowledge and skills on tuning of control systems ranging from sliding mode, LQR/LQG and others. I alwys have problem at this stage after rigor of modeling.

Most of control design problem involves tuning heuristically. In my opinion, this is randomness that doesnt have strategies. Even PID control with popular Ziegler Nichols still involve randomness!

there should be a way to know the range of tuning.

Hi,

Can methods used to diagnose faults in control systems be used to detect cyber attacks in control systems?

We have always thought of broader research and joining hands in research and analysis of electronics and computer science. As a computer science expert you may be a seasoned programmer and a thinker. I would like to introduce the different domains where electronics and computer science can merge and play a role

**Applied Electromagnetics & RF Circuits:**Applied electromagnetics (EM) plays an essential role in areas such as wireless technologies, the environment, life sciences, transportation, and more. Faculty and students perform research in all aspects of applied EM, including Microwave and Millimeter-Wave Circuits, MEMS Circuits, Antennas, Wave Propagation Studies for Wireless Applications, Scattering, Computational Electromagnetics, Active and Passive Microwave Remote Sensing, Plasma Electrodynamics, and EM Metamaterials.

**Computer Vision:**Research goals include: i) the semantic understanding of materials, objects, and actions within a scene; ii) modeling the spatial organization and layout of the scene and its behavior in time. The algorithms developed in this area of research enable the design of machines that can perform real-world visual tasks such as autonomous navigation, visual surveillance, or content-based image and video indexing.

**ontrol Systems:**The development of sophisticated computer aided design software has enabled analysis and controller design for complex multivariable systems. The needs of society for improved transportation safety and a cleaner environment have posed challenges that can only be solved with feedback control.**Embedded Systems:**Designing embedded systems is a huge challenge because they have so many requirements: they often need to be tiny, high-performance, inexpensive, reliable, and last a long time on poor power sources, all while sensing and influencing their surroundings. Faculty and students are applying their skills to the entire “stack,” from transistors and circuits to operating systems and applications.

**ECE Education Research:**ECE Education Research is a rigorous, interdisciplinary field in which scholars focus on and apply research methods from education, learning sciences, and social-behavioral sciences to address a variety of issues pertaining to: teaching and learning; college access and persistence; workforce development; and other issues critical to the success of the field of engineering. Scholars in the subfield of ECE Education Research focus on issues pertinent to the discipline of electrical and computer engineering.

**Integrated Circuits and VLSI:**Research in Very-large-scale integration (VLSI) digital circuits includes microprocessor and mixed signal (microcontroller) circuits, with emphasis on low-power and high-performance; computer-aided design, including logic synthesis, physical design, and design verification; testing and design for testability; advanced logic families and packaging; integrated circuit micro-architectures; and system integration.

**MEMS and Microsystems:**Devices such as micromachined neural probes for implantable prostheses, ultra-miniature low-power pressure sensors for catheters, tactile sensors arrays for fingerprint analysis, infra-red imagers for manufacturing process control, and micro gas chromatography systems for environmental monitoring are some of the past contributions of this program.

**Network, Communication & Information Systems (NCIS):**Communication networks are collections of receiving and transmitting stations that may relay information from one station to another by means of other stations acting as relays. There are many components in the process of transmitting information in a communication system. One component is information representation in minimal form, that is data compression. A second aspect of communication is modulation; the process whereby information is mapped into waveforms suitable for propagation. A third aspect is error control coding; the method by which errors made in receiving information can be corrected. The performance of a communication system is usually measured in terms of the probability of incorrectly decoding the information or the distortion between the original information-bearing signal and the reconstruction, and the energy used.

**Optics & Photonics:**Specific areas presently under investigation include nonlinear optics, optical MEMS (coupling optical fields to mechanical motion), ultrafast optics, semiconductor quantum optoelectronics, Terahertz generation and applications, fiber and integrated photonics and lasers, high-power fiber lasers, x-ray and EUV generation, quantum optics and quantum computing, optical microcavities, nanophotonics, spectroscopy of single quantum dots, biophotonics, and biophysical studies of biomolecular structure.

**Plasma Science & Engineering:**PSE has incredibly broad and strategic impact on national and economic security, and providing societal benefit. Modern microelectronic devices could not be fabricated in the absence of plasma etching, deposition and cleaning processes. Thin film solar cell technologies depend upon plasma deposition to be economically viable. Fabrication of biotechnology devices depends on plasma processes to harden artificial joints and prepare biocompatible surfaces on tissue scaffolding. Interplanetary probes are powered by plasma thrusters.

**Power and Energy:**Faculty are investigating energy conversion systems where enhanced performance of electrical machines and power electronics is being exploited to develop a variety of novel applications, from automotive propulsion systems to wind generators. Power systems research is seeking new tools and techniques for improving grid efficiency and robustness.

**Quantum Science & Technology:**Quantum mechanics has played an important role in many areas of engineering for decades now, fueling an increasing number of fundamental breakthroughs, as available devices become smaller and individual particles can be precisely controlled in the lab. Newly observed phenomena are often best explained using quantum theory, facilitating new technologies and applications. In particular, accounting for quantized energy levels and the Fermi nature of electrons in semiconductors has lead to more accurate modeling and optimization of CMOS transistors, as well as new results on capacitively-coupled quantum dots.

**Robotics & Autonomous Systems:**We also use artificial intelligence techniques for dealing with planning and uncertainty, localization and mapping, sensor processing and classification, and continuous learning.

**Signal & Image Processing and Machine Learning:**Signal processing is a broad engineering discipline that is concerned with extracting, manipulating, and storing information embedded in complex signals and images. Methods of signal processing include: data compression; analog-to-digital conversion; signal and image reconstruction/restoration; adaptive filtering; distributed sensing and processing; and automated pattern analysis.

**Solid-State Devices and Nanotechnology:**Research in organic and molecular electronics includes organic field-effect transistors, integrated circuits and light-emitting devices on glass and plastic substrates, hydrogenated amorphous silicon thin-film transistors and active-matrix arrays on glass and plastic substrates for flat panel displays and sensors, and active-matrix organic light-emitting display technology.

What are the other areas where there can be similar synergy and let us discuss further

I am planning to develop a test rig to control the valve opening and closing. The input signal for the control system is SSI input from absolute encoder and voltage (up to 5V) from pressure sensor (or 4-20mA current). The output from the control system is ON/OFF voltage signal (24VDC) to open and close the valve. Can anyone advise me what are the suitable instruments to be used & to link between all those devices (sensors and valves) to the controller and laptop/PC?

I some papers, the mean square error is considered. In some other, the mse is normalized by dividing the error by the (total sampling instants x the total length of the reference trajectory).

About the recent aspects of deep learning in control systems

i want to submit my research paper

I started to learn the Kalman filter. However, I couldn't understand its' difference with the feedback/feedforward control system. Ultimately both systems are used to minimize the errors between the measurement and estimated state.
