The number of publications per year on predictive control doubles every three years. The strong interest in academia is reflected in industry with two recent product releases. Both use model predictive control for high-power variable speed drives, which improves efficiency, increases rated power and lowers the overall system cost. This lecture introduces the main predictive control methods available today in a concise yet intuitively accessible way. The lesser known methods are also discussed, providing a comprehensive introduction to the subject. The first two industrial success stories are presented in detail, and their commercial benefits are explained. The lecture concludes with a critical assessment of the state-of-the-art in predictive control and points out directions for future research.
