Development of a model predictive controller for a

2009-8-27  Milling circuits are known to be difficult to control. In order toaddress these difficulties, it was decided to develop and test amodel predictive controller (MPC) for a milling circuit. A millingsimulator was written using Microsoft Visual C++ and used todesign and test the MPC controller. Due to the large number oftuning parameters in a controller of this type, an optimizingalgorithm was written that automatically tunes the controller.Good, robust control was obtained when the controller was tunedusing this algorithm.
