This paper gives an analysis of the efficacy of PFC strategies. PFC is widely used in industry for simple loops with constraint handling, as it is very simple and cheap to implement. However, the algorithm has had very little exposure in the mainstream literature. This paper gives some insight into when a PFC approach is expected to be successful and, conversely, when one should deploy with caution.
