Bilinear versus Linear Mpc : Application to a Polymerization Process

In this paper a comparison between a linear-model-based and a bilinear-modelbased identification and predictive control methodology is presented. Input-output data from a nonlinear first-principles simulation model of the free-radical polymerization of methylmethacrylate are used for black-box identification of a linear and a bilinear model. These black-box… CONTINUE READING
