The book presents some recent specialized theoretical and practical works in the field of process control based on the model predictive control (MPC) method. It includes seven chapters that present studies on the application of MPC in various technical processes, such as the atmospheric plasma spray process, permanent magnet synchronous motors, monitoring of the pose of a walking person, monitoring of the heat treatment process of raw materials, discrete event processes, control of passenger vehicles, and natural gas sweetening processes. Chapters include examples and case studies from researchers in the field. This volume provides readers with new solutions and answers to questions related to the emerging applications of MPC and their implementation.
