An adaptive predictive control method using multivariable bilinear model is proposed and evaluated experimentally. A recursive parameter estimation algorithm is used to determine the model parameters and one-step ahead prediction is used in the control law. To verify the performance and effectiveness of the proposed control method and to demonstrate the possibility of the application to a real processes, both computer simulations and experimental studies were performed. Results of computer simulations and experiments show that the proposed adaptive predictive control method using multivariable bilinear model exhibit robust and satisfactory control performance.
