In model-predictive control (MPC), achieving the best closed-loop performance under a given computational capacity is the underlying design consideration. This paper analyzes the MPC tuning problem with control performance and required computational capacity as competing design objectives. The proposed multi-objective design of MPC (MOD-MPC) approach extends current methods that treat control performance and the computational capacity separately – often with the latter as a fixed constraint – which requires the implementation hardware to be known a priori. The proposed approach focuses on the tuning of structural MPC parameters, namely sampling time and prediction horizon length, to produce ..
