Project Description

Predictive control is by now a well established methodology whereby one bases the design of the control law on the optimisation of system predictions. This allows constraint handling to be included systematically. Many extensions and applications to non-linear systems exist, but mostly require a significant computational burden. The aim of this project would be to investigate where a far simpler approach could be used for form an effective MPC law for a non-linear system.

Prospective applicants should have a degree in a subject relevant to the project (applicants from all disciplines are highly encouraged to apply).

Funding Notes

Applicants can apply for a Scholarship from the University of Sheffield but should note that competition for these Scholarships is highly competitive. it will be possible to make Scholarship applications from the Autumn with a strict deadline in late January/early February.
