Abstract

In this paper, Model Predictive Control of Quadruple tank process for centralized and decentralized method is proposed. Multi Input Multi Output (MIMO) processes are inherently more complex than Single Input Single Output (SISO) process because process interactions occur between controlled and manipulated variables. This problem can be solved using centralized and decentralized controllers. Model Predictive Control (MPC) technique can be applied to both centralized and decentralized of Quadruple tank processes. It consists of four inter connected water tanks and two pumps as shown in fig. 1. A general MPC control is presented and different approaches taken for the different aspects of the calculations are described. It is shown that MPC control is more stable, responsive and robust.
