Lecture 27 - Controller Transfer Functions and Block Diagrams

Lecture 27 demonstrates the application of Transfer Functions for process controllers. A Transfer Function relates an input to output response of a system. In this case the input is the Error (SP-PV) and the response is the Controller Output (CO).

Lecture 27 also pulls together elements from the course to construct an overall block diagram of a process. In this lecture, we use these elements to derive individual transfer functions and piece them together into an overall signal flow of the process.
