Definitions for "Closed-loop system"
A self-controlled blood-glucose control system (artificial pancreas or artificial beta cell).
A system in which the computer controls an external process using information received from the process-e.g., the closed loop in a traffic signal control system is from the computer to the controllers affecting the vehicular traffic and sensed by the traffic detectors and this information sent to the computer.
A control system that includes a provision for corrective action, taken on either a feedback or a feedforward basis.
A type of heating or cooling system in which the heat transfer fluid circulates from the space conditioning equipment to a heat exchanger that is immersed in a heat source or sink (such as the ground or water), where the fluid gains or loses heat without directly contacting the source or sink, and then is returned to the space conditioning equipment to complete the cycle.
