Modified dynamic matrix control

DMC (Dynamic Matrix Control) has been used successfully in industry for the last decade. It can deal with constraints and unusual dynamic behavior directly. It also shows a good control performance for the servo problem. Relatively, it can’t reject disturbances systematically. We propose a modified DMC method to control the regulatory process more efficiently. The proposed DMC method makes the control output by subtracting the estimated disturbance from the control output of the original DMC. Here, the disturbance is estimated by a new disturbance estimator. It shows better control performances than the original DMC.
