Many studies for which simulation is necessary include the presence of control systems. While plenty of Modelica libraries are nowadays available to accurately represent the plant; the same is not so true as for the control elements; since industrial ones are endowed with a number of functionalities -- and often present system- or even vendor-specific peculiarities -- that are not represented by the typical blocks (e.g.; based on transfer functions) offered by the existing libraries. This paper is an attempt to start filling the gap and provide an efficient solution; structured and organised in such a way to be easily understood by control specialists; and to ease information transfer between simulation studies and implementation.
