Abstract

The solution of linear quadratic predictive optimal control problems for systems represented in state-equation form, but using a polynomial systems approach, is considered. A multistep cost-function is used that includes future set-point information. A novel method is introduced for computing the vector of future controls and for solving a simpler optimization problem for the current control.
