Constrained Model Predictive Control Based on Reduced-Order Models

Conference:  52nd IEEE Annual Conference on Decision and Control (CDC), Florence, Italy. 10-13 December, 2013 Authors: P. Sopasakis, D. Bernardini, and A. Bemporad Abstract: The need for reduced-order approximations of dynamical systems emerges naturally in model-based control of very large-scale systems, such as those arising from the discretisation of partial differential equation models. The controller based on the reduced-order model, when

Multi-layer Model Predictive Control of Regional Water Networks: Application to the Catalunya Case Study

Conference: 52nd IEEE Annual Conference on Decision and Control (CDC), Florence, Italy. 10-13 December, 2013. Authors: Cong Cong Sun, Vicenc Puig and Gabriela Cembrano Abstract: A multi-layer model predictive control (MPC) scheme with temporal multi-level coordination for regional water networks is proposed. First, a multi-layer control structure resulting from a functional decomposition of water network is briefly presented. Inside each

Receding Horizon Control of Hybrid Linear Delayed Systems: Application to Sewer Networks

Conference: 52nd IEEE Annual Conference on Decision and Control (CDC), Florence, Italy. 10-13 December, 2013. Authors: Bernat Joseph-Duran, Carlos Ocampo-Martinez and Gabriela Cembrano Abstract: A control-oriented hybrid linear model for water transport in sewer networks is proposed as a suitable framework for the computation of real-time controllers for the minimization of flooding in presence of heavy-rain events. The
