Special Issue "Model Predictive Control: Algorithms and Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 December 2020).
Interests: advanced process control; model predictive control; setpoint optimization; soft computing; artificial intelligence
Model predictive control (MPC) is an advanced control method which makes it possible to effectively control multivariable and nonlinear processes subject to constraints. MPC is not only an active area of research, but also has a great number of applications in different fields. MPC has been traditionally used in process control, but due to the availability of powerful microcontrollers, MPC algorithms have become increasingly popular in fast embedded systems, e.g., automotive applications, drones, quadcopters, and robots.
The aim of this Special Issue is to present state-of-the-art algorithms used in MPC and report interesting applications of MPC in different fields. The possible topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following areas:
Control quality assessment of MPC
Hierarchical and decentralized MPC
IT solutions for MPC
MPC in IoT systems
Online learning in MPC
Optimization algorithms for MPC
Setpoint optimization in MPC
Stability and robustness of MPC
Applications of MPC in automotive systems
Applications of MPC in energy systems
Applications of MPC in heating, ventilation, air conditioning (HVAC) systems
Applications of MPC in industrial process control

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Algorithms is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
