Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

An overview is first provided of some of the most common formulations of Predictive Control, such as Dynamic Matrix Control (DMC), Predictive Functional Control (PFC), Preview Control and Generalized Predictive Control (GPC). The main features, advantages and disadvantages are discussed. A new algorithm, based on a so called Linear Quadratic Generalized Predictive Controller (LQGPC) is then introduced. This algorithm combines features of Predictive Control with those of Linear Quadratic Gaussian Control, providing improved stability and robustness properties.
