With growth in industrial automation,electrification of commute & transport and advanced energy harvesting; theneed for efficient and reliable energy conversion has grown multifold. “RealTime Control”, as the name suggests, is a technique of sensing, processing andactuating applications in real time; which means shortest latency on continualbasis. Performance here transcends conventional CPU processing power andencompasses best tuned precision and latency optimization across sensors,controllers, drivers and power electronic switches all combined as a part of acontrol loop. In this talk, we shall review critical aspects of real timecontrol performance and discuss how performance here differs from performancein other domains.
