About this book

Introduction

In recent years Model Predictive Control (MPC) schemes have established themselves as the preferred control strategy for a large number of processes. Their ability to handle constraints and multivariable processes and their intuitive way of posing the pro cess control problem in the time domain are two reasons for their popularity. This volume by authors of international repute provides an extensive review concerning the theoretical and practical aspects of predictive controllers. It describes the most commonly used MPC strategies, especially Generalised Predictive Control (GPC), showing both their theoretical properties and their practical implementation issues. Topics such as multivariable MPC, constraint handling, stability and robustness properties are thoroughly analysed in this text.

Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

"This text is an introduction to model predictive control, a control methodology which has encountered some success in industry, but which still presents many theoretical challenges. … The book is of interest as an introduction to model predictive control, and a merit is the special presentation, connecting the subject intimately with industrial situations." (A. Akutowicz, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1080, 2006)

"It is a much more ambitious work, seeking to inform practitioners how to implement MPC while at the same time serving as an advanced student text as well as reference for control researchers. … The authors clearly see the text as a teaching aid since several chapters include exercises. … In summary, a significant contribution to this important field for control academics, and some highly experienced MPC practitioners … ."
