sentially a mathematical model of the process. Ordinarily, the inclusion in the model of each and every load to which the process is subjected is neither possible nor economically justifiable. This means that a feedback control loop (usually containing the nonlinear controller for pH applications) is required in conjunction with the feedforward system. The function of the feedback controller is to trim and correct for minor inaccuracies in the feedforward model.
