Effects of Plant Identification on the Generalized Predictive Controllers Design

Open access


The effects of the estmated plant models accuracy on the control system signals quality after generalized predictive controllers design are studied in the paper. Two identification approaches are used for different in structures discrete-time models – by optimization procedure in Optimization Toolbox based on the plant step response as a standard deterministic plant characteristic and by functions in System Identification Toolbox after experiments with random signals on the plant. The generalized predictive controllers are design according to the estimated models. The processes in the simulated control systems are analyzed concerning the effects of different kind plant models on the designed controllers.
