Control or regulation?

Many people use the terms control and regulation interchangeably. However, they do have precise definitions – largely as a result of developments in the field of automation.

The terms “control” and “regulation” depend on the type of plant. With speed “control” a signal which is expected to produce the required speed is sent to the motor. With speed “regulation” a feedback signal is given from the process.

If the speed does not correspond to the requirements, the signal to the motor is regulated automatically until the motor speed is as it should be.
