We describe "Ramp" or "Ramp Function" in the field of control engineering in this section.

The ramp function is referred to as a rectified linear function. The graph indicates unit "0" until Time remains 0, and as the Time increases, the Unit will be proportional to the Time. The ramp function has a graph shape like a ramp.

As for the ramp function, the ramp input signal will start at Time 0 and increase linearly with Time. The ramp response is called a ramp response.

In contrast to the ramp input, the step input increases a staircase (step) input at a given time. The step function graph is shaped like staircases instead of ramps of the ramp function.

The ramp control is often used in a temperature controller to gradually increase the temperature at a specific rate.
