A Robust Model Predictive Control Framework for Diesel Generators

A constraint tightened linear-time-varying MPC framework is proposed with applications in power tracking for variable and fixed speed generators. Current constraint tightening approaches are extended to allow for practical applications where future system representations are unknown. The resulting control structure is shown to be robustly feasible under given conditions. Knowledge about the geometry of system constraints is exploited to obtain a computationally efficient method of computing tightened sets online. A simulation study is presented demonstrating the ability of the controller to handle modelling error and demonstrate tracking of a commanded power profile.
