Economic MPC with periodic terminal constraints of nonlinear differential-algebraic-equation systems: Application to drinking water networks
Document typeConference report
Rights accessOpen Access
In this paper, an Economic Model Predictive Control (EMPC) strategy with periodic terminal constraints is addressed for nonlinear differential-algebraic-equation systems with an application to Drinking Water Networks (DWNs). DWNs have some periodic behaviours because of the daily seasonality of water demands and electrical energy price. The periodic terminal constraint and economic terminal cost are implemented in the EMPC controller design for the purpose of achieving convergence. The feasibility of the proposed EMPC strategy when disturbances are considered is guaranteed by means of soft constraints implemented by using slack variables. Finally, the comparison results in a case study of the D-Town water network is provided by applying the EMPC strategy with or without periodic terminal constraints.
