Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

In this paper, sequential nonlinear Distributed Model Predictive Control (DMPC) algorithms for large-scale systems that can handle constraints are proposed. The proposed algorithms are based on nonlinear MPC strategy, which uses a statedependent nonlinear model to avoid the complexity of the nonlinear programming (NLP) problem. In this distributed framework, local MPCs solve convex optimization problem and exchange information via one directional communication channel at each sampling time to achieve the global control objectives of the system. Numerical simulation results show that the performance of the proposed DMPC algorithms is close to the centralized NMPC but computationally more efficient compared to the centralized one.
