Scope: Model based predictive control has proved to be a fertile area of research but above all has gained enormous success with industry, especially in the context of process control. Non-linear model based predictive control is of particular interest as this best represents the dynamics of most real plant, and this book collects together the important results which have emerged in this field which are illustrated by means of simulations on industrial models.

In particular there are contributions on feedback linearisation, differential flatness, control Lyapunov functions, output feedback, and neural networks. The international contributors to the book are all respected leaders within the field, which makes for essential reading for advanced students, researchers and industrialists in the field of control of complex systems.

Book readership

Control, systems and process engineers, computational modellers and researchers; applied mathematics students.


Academic, professional, reference.
