Human progress from a primitive state to our present complex, technological world has been marked by learning new and improved methods to control the environment. Simply stated, the term control means methods to force parameters in the environment to have specific values. This can be as simple as making the temperature in a room stay at or as complex as manufacturing an integrated circuit or guiding a spacecraft to Jupiter. In general, all the elements necessary to accomplish the control objective are described by the term control system. The purpose of this book is to examine the elements and methods of control system operation used in industry to control industrial processes (hence the term process control).
The basic strategy by which a control system operates is logical and natural. In fact, the same strategy is employed in living organisms to maintain temperature, fluid flow rate, and a host of other biological functions. This is natural process control.The technology of artificial control was first developed using a human as an integral part of the control action. When we learned how to use machines, electronics, and computers to replace the human function, the term automatic control came into use.
