Signal selectors are used in the most basic form of multivariable control, i.e. multi-input single-output (MISO) applications. Relative gain is defined as the ratio of the process gain with all other controllers on manual to the same process gain with all other controllers in automatic mode.

A multi-variable control system for the optimisation of a ball-mill coal-pulveriser has been proposed ( Zhou et al., 2003 ).
