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

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.
