Properties of MPC for max-plus-linear systems

T. van den Boom and B. De Schutter, "Properties of MPC for max-plus-linear systems," European Journal of Control, vol. 8, no. 5, pp. 453-462, 2002.

Model predictive control (MPC) is a very popular controller design method in the process industry. One of the main advantages of MPC is that it can handle constraints on the inputs and outputs. Usually MPC uses linear discrete-time models. Recently we have extended this framework to max-plus-linear discrete event systems. In this paper we further explore this topic. More specifically, we focus on implementation and timing aspects, closed-loop behavior and tuning rules for model predictive control of max-plus-linear (MPL) systems.
