Additional information



This paper describes a novel simple model based predictive controller with manipulated value constraints. This controller is suitable for substitution of the classical PID controller used in industrial practice. It is assumed that the controlled system is stable, linear and t-invariant FIR system. The discrete step response sequence is used as the process model. Alternatively it is possible to use three-parameter model. To make the open-loop optimization easier the set of admissible control sequences is restricted to stepwise "pulse-step" sequences. The optimization procedure is then executable in reasonable time. A single tuning parameter is available for manual fine-tuning of the controller - the control moves penalty coefficient.
