Automation and Information Engineering in Chemistry and Food Industry – master (full-time, attendance method), 4. semester
Level of study:
Prerequisites for registration:
Evaluation is based 50% on the work during the semester, 50% from the final project defense. The rating is based on the standard FCHPT scale.
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Students will obtain in the course knowledge of the concept of Model Predictive Control (MPC), they will know how to formulate MPC problems as convex optimization problems, they will be able to choose a proper type of objective function and constraints, and and they will know how to solve MPC numerically and implement it in closed loop.
The course is divided into three main parts. The first one introduces the concept of model predictive control (MPC) and shows its analogies to optimal control. Second part describes mathematical fundaments required to formulate MPC problems as convex optimization problems. The final part discusses various formulations of MPC, including regulation towards non-zero references, removal of regulation offsets, and output regulation.
