A tutorial introduction is provided to the relatively new subject of hybrid systems. The modelling of hybrid systems is assuming ever greater importance for systems where the combination of continuous control and with logical decision making is required. This arises in some of the most critical operating regions where systems are under start-up, shutdown or(More)
The design of nonlinear predictive controllers based on linear time-varying prediction models is discussed. The linear time-varying models can be obtained by applying a local linearization along the nominal input and state trajectory or by describing the nonlinear state equations by state dependent state space equations. A graphical predictive control(More)
