Industrial Control Resources

Internet Control Resource Centre

We maintain a Resource Centre as part of the services to ACTC members and the larger industrial control community.

It is intended to compliment the many existing control engineering resources that are currently available on the Internet, by being much more industry focussed. This is reflected in the division of the resources into Applications, Technologies and Systems.

Glossary of Control Engineering Terms

We also maintain a glossary of commonly used control engineering technical terms contains a diverse range of definitions that reflects the many different industries and applications that control encompasses.

The mathematical nature of some control theory means that rigorous definitions are fundamental to many techniques. However, this glossary aims, where possible, to present simple and consequently less rigorous definitions, so that a quick overview can be obtained. Where appropriate, links to more rigorous definitions are included.
