A control system consisting of interconnected components is designed to achieve the desired purpose. To understand the purpose of a control system, it is useful to examine examples of control systems through the course of history.

Modern control engineering practice includes the use of control design strategies for improving manufacturing processes, the efficiency of energy use, advanced automobile control, including rapid transit, among others.

Control systems are an integral part of modern society. Numerous applications are all around us:

• The rocket’s fire
• The space shuttle lifts off the earth orbit
• An air conditioner controls the temperature of a room

These are just a few examples of automatically controlled systems.

The Control system also exists in nature. Within our bodies are numerous control systems. We build control systems for four primary reasons:

1. Power amplification
2. Remote control
3. The convenience of an input form
4. Compensation for disturbances
