Significant advance in logical predictive control

Billingsley, John and Ghude, Sarang (2015) Significant advance in logical predictive control. Electronics Letters, 51 (16). pp. 1240-1241. ISSN 0013-5194


A new strategy is presented that gives near-time-optimal control of a higher order system that has a constrained input. It is simple enough that it can be embedded in a common microcontroller. It determines the plant input by logical decisions alone, unlike the method today termed
Model Predictive Control that requires the computation of cost functions. With such an implementation, very fast systems can be controlled in real time.
