Generally, the controller design should be performed to narrow the shape of the probability density function of the tracking error. A small information entropy value corresponds to a narrow distribution function, which means that the uncertainty of the related random variable is small. In this paper, information entropy is introduced in the field of control performance assessment (CPA). For the unknown time delay case, the minimum information entropy (MIE) benchmark is presented, and a

Based on these, the control performance assessment procedures are developed for both the steady and the transient processes. Simulation tests and an industrial case study of a main steam pressure system of a 1,000MW power unit are utilized to verify the effectiveness of the proposed procedures.
