Resources on Predictive Control

  • Advanced Control in Co-generation Utility Management, S.Goodhart, J.Nishizawa, K.Yano and H.Yada, IEE Computing & Control Journal, Dec 2000. A description of the application of DMCplus to optimise operating costs of a steam and electrical co-generation plant at a large Mitsubishi Chemical plant in Japan.
  • Algorithms for Industrial Model Predictive Control, D.Sandoz, M.Desforges, B.Lennox and Peter Goulding, IEE Computing & Control Journal, June 2000. Discusses three different methods for realising constrained predictive control that are in different stages of take up in industrial applications. An example based on a heavy oil fractionator is presented.
  • Special Feature in IEE Computing & Control Journal, October 1999, on Model Predictive Control, including:
    • A brief overview of model predictive control, Peter Roberts.
    • Innovation in Industrial Model Predictive Control, David Sandoz,
