Cooperative distributed control: Model predictive control for the industrial Internet of things
Cooperative distributed model predictive control is receiving significant attention as a major next generation MPC technology and key component in unlocking the potential of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Cooperative distributed control enables a distributed network of cooperating controllers to collaborate towards a common objective without use of a centralised coordinator or optimiser. In addition to presenting a simple, modular route to plant-wide control and optimisation, the exciting potential is as a general approach to distributed MPC application within an IIoT framework.
