Abstract

The design of nonlinear predictive controllers based on linear time-varying prediction models is discussed. The linear time-varying models can be obtained by applying a local linearization along the nominal input and state trajectory or by describing the nonlinear state equations by state dependent state space equations. A graphical predictive control framework that provides practical methods for nonlinear control design is introduced using LabVIEW. The effectiveness of the algorithms and the easy applicability of the developed framework are illustrated in a simulation example.
