If lead-lag systems still puzzle you, or you need a quick refresher on the subject, check out the latest chemical engineering tutorial in the Learn ChemE series.
This tutorial introduces lead lag systems, with a particular focus on first-order systems. The tutorial was made by faculty at Lafayette College and, like the entire Learn ChemE series, produced by the University of Colorado Boulder, Department of Chemical & Biological Engineering.
If you're looking for help with other process control subjects, be sure to peruse the latest titles in the series' playlist of process control tutorials.
