Objectives of the Chapter
Introduce the concept of process uncertainty and explore its effect on IMC system stability and performance.
Present a tuning method for adjusting the IMC filter time constant that accomplishes a desired relative stability for all processes in a predefined uncertainty set.
Explore the effect of uncertainty on controller design and model selection.
