This book presents a guideline for EWMA filter design for industrial wireless networked control system, both theoretically and practically. The filter’s key advantages are simple, effective, low computational overhead. This book also provides a guideline for practical implementation of EWMA filter for improving networked control performance of various process plants. It further discusses not only the advantages of the filter, but also the limitations and how to avoid them when implementing the filter from practical point of view.
