Practical Design and Application of Model Predictive Control 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 atwww.practicalmpc.com.
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
