The term model-based control (MBC) is used in this text to mean control systems that explicitly embed a process model in the control algorithm. In particular, we consider control algorithms such as Internal Model Control (IMC) and Model-Predictive Control (MPC) which have found applications in the process industry. Beginning in the early 1970s, the concept of using a predictive model of the process to determine the control actions to be taken has been accepted widely by ...
