Description

Practical Design and Application of MPC is a self-learning resource on how to design, tune and deploy an MPC using Matlab® and Simulink®. This reference is one of the most detailed publications on how to design and tune MPC controllers. Examples presented range from double-Mass spring system, ship heading and speed control, robustness analysis through Monte-Carlo simulations, photovoltaic optimal control, and energy management of power-split and air-handling control. Readers will also learn how to embed the designed MPC controller in a real-time platform such as Arduino®.

The selected problems are nonlinear and challenging, and thus serve as an excellent experimental, dynamic system to show the reader the capability of MPC. The step-by-step solutions of the problems are thoroughly documented to allow the reader to easily replicate the results. Furthermore, the Matlab® and Simulink® codes for the solutions are available for free download. Readers can connect with the authors through the dedicated website which includes additional free resources (www.practicalmpc.com).

Key Features

  • Illustrates how to design, tune and deploy MPC for projects in a quick manner.
  • Demonstrates a variety of applications that are solved using Matlab® and Simulink®.
  • Bridges the gap in providing a number of realistic problems with very hands-on training.
  • Provides MATLAB® and Simulink® code solutions. This includes nonlinear plant models that the reader can use for other projects and research work.
  • Presents application problems with solutions to help reinforce the information learned.
