Registration is required. Please ensure the payment details section of the form is completed.


Predictive control is probably the most popular advanced control technique adopted by the industry. Its popularity stems from capability for constraints handling and optimal control framework. The course provides overview of Predictive Control techniques and then gives guidelines for analysis and tuning of predictive controllers.
