Backwoods Control Theory
This paper talks about closed-loop (or feedback) control systems. This is the case when you are implementing a system. The control software combines the feedback with the command to create the drive signal. The drive signal is amplified and applied to the plant, which changes its behavior. The plant behavior is measured and read by the control software as feedback. Since this all goes in one big circle it is called “closed loop”.
