Digital control systems are often associated with other tasks of process automation. A brief survey will therefore be presented dealing with the various tasks and state of the art of process automation.


Control Algorithm Process Automation Feedforward Control Digital Control System Feedback Control Algorithm 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
