Predictive Control of a Laboratory Time Delay Process Experiment

S. Enev
Published Online: 2014-06-17 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.2478/itc-2013-0005


The paper presents the design and implementation of a Model Predictive Control (MPC) scheme of a laboratory heatexchange process with a significant time delay in the input-output path. The optimization problem formulation is given and an MPC control algorithm is designed, achieving integral properties. Details, related to the practical implementation of the control law are discussed and the first experimental results are presented.

Keywords: Model predictive control; time delay process; experimental results
