Fast Model Predictive Control


M. Morari

IAAC International Symposium in Systems and Control in honor of three past IAAC Presidents, Technion, Haifa, 7 8 October

Our ideas on controller robustness, Model Predictive Control (MPC) and Internal Model Control (IMC) were shaped in the 1980s through interactions with Coleman Brosilow, Reuel Shinnar and his then graduate student Zali Palmor. After paying tribute to these influences I will sketch out the developments which were the focus of our more recent research. In the 1980s Model Predictive Control (MPC) became the algorithm of choice in the process industries for demanding multi-variable applications involving constraints. Today's vastly more powerful computational resources and a series of new algorithms have made these tools suitable for problems of essentially any size and time scale. I will describe the road taken and illustrate the effectiveness with industrial examples from the automotive and power electronics domains and the industrial energy sector.
