Abstract This paper proposes two different health-aware economic predictive control strategies that aim at minimizing the damage of components in a pasteurization plant. The damage is assessed with a rainflow-counting algorithm that allows estimating the components’ fatigue. By using the results obtained from this algorithm, a simplified model that characterizes the health of the system is developed and integrated into the predictive controller. The overall control objective is modified by… 
Adaptive Feedback Control for a Pasteurization Process
An adaptive algorithm is proposed, which was obtained by starting from an observer-based control approach, and results are the obtainment of a simple PI-like controller structure, where the control parameters depend on the state of the system and are adapted online.
Economic Reliability-Aware MPC-LPV for Operational Management of Flow-Based Water Networks Including Chance-Constraints Programming
An economic reliability-aware model predictive control for the management of drinking water transport networks (DWNs) using an Linear Parameter Varying (LPV) modeling approach which shows that the system reliability of the DWN is maximized compared with the other approaches.
Tuning of Multivariable Model Predictive Control for Industrial Tasks
It is shown that the discussed tuning approach makes it possible to obtain very good control quality, much better than in the most common case in which all tuning parameters are constant.
Model predictive control based on LPV models with parameter-varying delays
This paper presents a Model Predictive Control strategy based on Linear Parameter Varying (LPV) models with varying delays affecting states and inputs that reduces the computational burden compared to the solution of a non-linear optimization problem.

Fast Real-Time Model Predictive Control for a Ball-on-Plate Process
A fast state–space MPC algorithm is discussed, which is compared with the classical PID and LQR controllers and its main advantage is computational simplicity: the manipulated variables are found on-line using explicit formulas with parameters calculated off-line; no real-time optimization is necessary.
