A design of a novel model predictive controller is presented. The proposed Sliding Mode Predictive Control (SMPC) algorithm combines the design technique of Sliding-Mode Control (SMC) with Model based Predictive Control (MPC). The SMPC showed a considerable robustness improvement with respect to MPC in the presence of time delay, and showed an enhanced(More)
The study presents a robust closed-loop sliding mode controller with internal model for blood glucose control in type-1 diabetes. Type-1 diabetic patients depend on external insulin delivery to keep their blood glucose within near-normal ranges. Closed-loop artificial pancreas is developed to help avoid dangerous, potentially life-threatening hypoglycemia,(More)
