Reference: 1998, Vol 19, No 4, pp. 175-184.

Keywords: Predictive control, hybrid control, logic design

Abstract: In this paper we point out potential problems in systems where both logic and continuous control influence a continuous plant. We also propose model predictive control (MPC) based approaches for handling the problems. Simulations on a simple but nontrivial plant support the discussion.
