Objectives of the Chapter
In this chapter we describe a discrete-time implementation of model-based control algorithm called model-predictive control (MPC). The main issues addressed are
Reduction of a control problem into an optimization problem that is solved at every sample time.
Incorporating effect of measured disturbances (feedforward control).
Control of multivariable systems.
Chapter 14, “Discrete-Time Models”
Appendix C, “Linear Least-Squares Regression”
In this chapter we will consider discrete-time (computer-control) systems. The control problem is expressed as a problem of minimizing an objective function subject to constraints. The availability of a model allows us ...
