Gaussian process model based predictive control

Kocijan, J., Murray-Smith, R., Rasmussen, C.E. and Girard, A. (2004) Gaussian process model based predictive control. In: American Control Conference, Boston, Massachusetts, 30 June - 2 July 2004, pp. 2214-2219. ISBN 0780383354




Gaussian process models provide a probabilistic non-parametric modelling approach for black-box identification of non-linear dynamic systems. The Gaussian processes can highlight areas of the input space where prediction quality is poor, due to the lack of data or its complexity, by indicating the higher variance around the predicted mean. Gaussian process models contain noticeably less coefficients to be optimized. This paper illustrates possible application of Gaussian process models within model-based predictive control. The extra information provided within Gaussian process model is used in predictive control, where optimization of control signal takes the variance information into account. The predictive control principle is demonstrated on control of pH process benchmark.
