Open Access research with a European policy impact...

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 European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

Abstract

A predictive control strategy is proposed for the shaping of the output probability density function (PDF) of linear stochastic systems. The B-spline neural network is used to set up the output PDF model and therefore converts the PDF-shaping into the control of B-spline weights vector. The Diophantine equation is then introduced to formulate the predictive PDF model, based on which a moving-horizon control algorithm is developed so as to realize the predictive PDF tracking performance.
