Parallel MPC for Transient Thermal Error Attenuation

C. Andrade-Cabrera

Abstract: This paper presents a sub-optimal predictive control method which, under the assumption of parallelization, reduces the solution time required for real-time simulation-assisted predictive control without sacrificing the temporal resolution inherent to move-blocking techniques. An abstract case study is introduced to demonstrate the advantages of the proposed methodology. Certainty equivalence is assumed to be known at first, and modelling uncertainty is later introduced to determine loss of performance due to mismatch in building response estimation. It is shown that the proposed method increases closed-loop performance as disturbances increase.
