Model Predictive Control (MPC) uses a mathematical representation of the process to predict and manipulate the future response of a system. Instead of a feedback strategy like PID control, MPC is actively making compensating moves to stay within constraints, drive to an economic optimum, and maximize or minimize certain quantities. Lecture 32 is an introduction to MPC and multivariable control.

MPC requires the numerical solution of dynamic equations. Below is a tutorial on solving differential and algebraic equations.

#### Optimization Review

As part of the review on optimization, homework problem 19.14 was covered in class.

**Homework Problem 19.14** from Process Dynamics and Control (Seborg, Edgar, Mellichamp, Doyle)

A reversible chemical reaction, A->B and B->A, occurs in an isothermal continuous stirred-tank reactor. The rate expressions for the forward and reverse reactions are:

- r1 = k1 CA
- r2 = k2 CB

Using the information given below, use a numerical search procedure to determine the value of Fb (L/hr) that maximizes the production rate of Cb (i.e. the amount of Cb that leaves the reactor, mol B/hr). The allowable values of Fb are 0 <= Fb <= 200 L/hr.

Available information

- The reactor is perfectly mixed.
- The volume of liquid, V, is maintained constant using an overflow line (not shown in the diagram).
- The following parameters are kept constant at the indicated numerical values:

- V = 200 L
- FA = 150 L/hr
- CAF = 0.3 mol A/L
- CBF = 0.3 mol B/L

The solution to this problem is possible with a number of numerical or analytical techniques. One solution approach that we covered in class was with the APMonitor software through the web interface.

We'll also take some time to review material for closed-loop control analysis. This includes PID equations in the Laplace domain, stability analysis of proportional-only controllers, model predictive control, and optimization topics. A full listing of the topics are detailed in the attached worksheet.

We'll also take some time to review material for closed-loop control analysis. We formerly had an exam at this point in the semester but have replaced it with a second lab project. It is helpful to revisit the last couple weeks and get the big picture of where we are headed.

This review includes PID equations in the Laplace domain, stability analysis of proportional-only controllers, model predictive control, and optimization topics. A full listing of the topics are detailed in the attached worksheet.
