  The European XFEL project is a 4th generation light source. The first beam will be delivered in the beginning of 2015 and will produce spatially coherent ≤80fs short photon pulses with a peak brilliance of 1032–1034 photons/s/mm2/mrad2/0.1% BW in the energy range from 0.26 to 29 keV at electron beam energies of 10.5 GeV, 14 GeV, or 17.5 GeV . The Undulator systems are used to produce photon beams for SASE 1, SASE 2 and SASE 3. Each undulator system consists of an array of undulator cells installed in a row along the electron beam. A single undulator cell itself consists of a planar undulator, a phase shifter, magnetic field correction coils and a quadrupole mover. This paper describes the design of the entire undulator control system including local and global control. It presents a concept of integration of the undulator control into the accelerator control system as well as into the experiment control.
