Exadaktylos, Vasileios and Taylor, C. James (2010) Multi-objective performance optimisation for model predictive control by goal attainment. International Journal of Control, 83 (7). pp. 1374-1386. ISSN 0020-7179Full text not available from this repository.
This paper proposes an approach for performance tuning of Model Predictive Control (MPC) using goal-attainment optimisation of the cost function weighting matrices. The approach is developed for three formulations of the control problem: (i) minimal and (ii) non-minimal design based on the same cost function; and (iii) a non-minimal MPC approach with an explicit integral-of-error state variable and modified cost function. This approach is based on earlier research into multi-objective optimisation for Proportional-Integral-Plus (PIP) control systems. Simulation experiments for a 3-input, 3-output Shell Heavy Oil Fractionator model illustrate the feasibility of MPC goal-attainment for multivariable decoupling and attainment of a specific output response. For this example, the integral-of-error state variable offers improved design flexibility and hence, when it is combined with the proposed tuning method, yields an improved closed loop response in comparison to minimal MPC.
