Abstract

This chapter is dedicated to presenting some MPC applications to the control of different real and simulated processes. The first application presented corresponds to a self-tuning and a gain scheduling GPC for a distributed collector field of a solar power plant. In order to illustrate how easily the control scheme shown in Chapter 5 can be used in any commercial control system, some applications concerning the control of typical variables such as flows, temperatures and levels of different processes of a pilot plant are presented. The description of two applications in the food industry (a sugar refinery and an olive oil mill) are included. Finally the application of an MPC to a highly nonlinear process (a mobile robot) is also described.
