A first order model of an electrophotographic process under the influence of several process control loops has been developed. The model is used to examine the transient behavior of the system over a range of control conditions. Results illustrate the potential benefits of process control to image quality stability. However, it is also shown that poorly designed controls can lead to significant degradation in performance.
