Module 16. Digital Control

This module provides a tutorial overview of digital control system analysis and design. After studying this module, the reader should understand the following:

  • Discrete and continuous controller performance is similar for short sample times

  • The discrete equivalent to a continuous-system RHP zero is a zero outside the unit circle

  • A discrete control system is stable if the poles of the discrete closed-loop characteristic equation are inside the unit circle

  • The discrete IMC procedure factors zeros outside the unit circle and negative zeros inside the unit circle into the “bad stuff”

  • A continuous process transfer function with no RHP zeros may have an equivalent discrete transfer function with a zero outside the unit circle, ...
