Model predictive control (MPC) is the most widely used optimal control technique. Economic MPC is a generalized design of MPC that has received significant attention in the past few years. It removes the separation between optimization and control in the traditional hierarchical real-time optimization systems and addresses both optimization and control in one single layer. Economic MPC optimizes a general economic cost function which in general is not quadratic. This leads to significant challenges in the stability analysis, computation, performance characterization of economic MPC. In this talk, we will first review the fundamentals of MPC and explain what is and why economic MPC. Then, we will discuss why and how to relax the classical steady-state tracking to zone tracking. This relaxation gives more degrees of freedom to the controller to optimize the economic performance. A general zone MPC framework will be introduced. The applications of economic MPC and zone MPC to different systems will be discussed.
