Predictive control is a method, which is suitable for control of linear discrete dynamical systems. However, control of systems with fast dynamics could be problematic using predictive control. The calculation of a predictive-control algorithm can exceed the sampling period. This situation occurs in case with higher prediction horizons and many constraints on variables in the predictive control. In this contribution, an improving of the classical approach is presented. The reduction of the computational time is performed using an analysis of steady states in the control. The presented approach is based on utilization of information from the feedback control. Then this information is applied in the control algorithm. Finally, the classical method is compared to the presented modification using the time analyses.
