Control technology involves the targeted manipulation of physical, chemical, biological or other factors in technical systems. Manipulation is based on the difference between the nominal value and the measured actual value of each factor and affects their dynamic behaviour so that it approaches the desired behaviour. The attributes of a facility are determined or theoretically described through analysis of measured results from experiments. From this, an appropriate control cycle is created, whose dynamic behaviour is theoretically examined. The control cycle that is created from this is tested and optimized during operational start-up.
