Spreadsheet Procedure for Simulating Setpoint Tracking in SISO by Dynamic Matrix Control

Larry K. Jang, Roger C. Lo


The objective of this work is to present a spreadsheet tool that illustrates an ideal case of dynamic matrix control (DMC) calculations. The ideal case presented in this work is a hypothetical single‐input‐single‐output DMC control system for setpoint tracking, in the absence of disturbance and mismatch between the measured and predicted process variable, at various move suppression coefficients. Students in undergraduate process control class who followed the procedure to build the spreadsheet would gain a good basic understanding of DMC.
