This study outlines the various types of control systems and reviews the necessary mathematical techniques to solve the problem of multivariable interactive control. The characteristics as well as the state representation for control processes involving either p or v type canonical structures are discussed. Next, the characteristics of multivariable interactive discrete control systems are discussed in detail. The advantages of flexibility and speed of microprocessors are used as powerful tools to implement a microprocessor-based system can be employed to control discrete processes. To demonstrate a practical application of a microprocessor-based system in a multivariable interactive discrete process, the algorithm and software (Assembly Language) is developed for a special engine control system selected as the model.
