Compensation of drivetrain oscillations and the adaptive control of automatic gear boxes are examples for applications in the drivetrain area. ABS control, suspension control and vehicle dynamic control increase the drive ability of the vehicle and support the driver in dangerous situations. Airbag-systems with automatic recognition of seat occupancy improve passive safety of the passengers in case of an accident. Another large area of control applications are comfort functions like air-condition or navigation systems.

1. What do you think is the role of an automobile engineer in our company?
When interviewing for the position of an automobile engineer, go through the job description minutely. Even for the same position, responsibilities might be different in different companies. When you know what the company expects from you, framing the answer becomes easy.
2. What is a control system?
The control system the output and inputs are interrelated in such a manner that the output quantity or variable is controlled by input quantity, then such a system is called control system.
3. What are the different types of control systems?
Open Loop control system: The open loop control system is one where the amount of output does not affect the amount of input. There is no feedback from output to input.
Closed Loop control system: The closed loop control system provides feedback from the correction output amount. so as to maintain the desired output of the system
4. What is the feedback in the control system?
When the input is fed to the system and the output received is sampled, and the proportional signal is then fed back to the input for automatic correction of the error for further processing to get the desired output is called as feedback in control system.
5. What is Signal Flow Graph?
The graphical representation of the system's relationship between the variables of a set of linear equations is called SFG (Signal Flow Graph). Signal flow graphs do not require any reduction technique or process.
6. What is mean by Deterministic control system?
A control system is said to be deterministic when its response to input as well as behavior to external disturbance is predictable and repeatable.
7. Write short notes about SISO and MIMO.
A system having only one input and one output is called single input and single output system. Some systems may have multiple input and multiple outputs, these are called multiple input and multiple output systems.
8. Define Open loop system.
A system in which output is dependent on input but controlling action is totally independent of the output or changes in input of the system, is called an open loop system.
9. What is meant by instrument location & JB location?
This consist of Instrument location considering the piping drawing given from Piping dept. We identifies the locations of the instrument in the equipment layouts and put the bubbles and elevation and JB nos for the location.
Same way depending upon the accessibility we decide the location of JB and marking of it into the instrument location plan is JB location. There is no need to make a different drawing for this.
10. Where is Servomechanism used?
Servomechanism is used in the control system so that the mechanical position of a device can be varied with the help of output.
The Servomechanism is widely used in a Governor value position control mechanism that is used in power plants to take the speed of turbine and process it using the transducer, and the final value is taken as a mechanical movement of the value. However, nowadays Governor value position control is done with Electronic controls that use power Thyristors. This mechanism is also used in robotic hand movement.
11. How to decide cable tray size?
Based on the occupancy in the cable tray and a number of cables required we have to choose the size of the cable tray. These are available in all sizes like 80,150, 300, 450, 600 and 900.
12. What is the cut-off Rate?
The slope near the cut-off frequency of the log-magnitude curve is called the cut-off rate. The cut-off rate indicates the ability of the system to distinguish between the signal and the noise.
13. What is the difference between a two-stroke and a four-stroke engine?
This is a technical question to test your knowledge and brevity. You may have learnt an entire chapter on this topic back in college, but this time when you have to carefully select the most crucial differentiating factors. Also, mention the practical outcomes of the differences between these two engines.
14. What are unstable systems?
Unstable systems are the system in which all the roots of the characteristic equations lie on the left half of the 'S' plane.
15. What is an Automatic Controller?
Automatic Controllers are the device which compares the actual value of plant output with the desired value. These systems produce the control system that reduces the deviation to ?0? or to a small value and determines the deviation.
