This paper presents a basic review and explanation of the predictive control, discusses the inherent inadequacies with the control/error weighting scheme employed by the predictive control, and recommends some modifications to greatly improve its performance. Some simple examples are presented at the end of the paper to verify that the enhanced weighted scheme does, indeed, improve the predictive controller’s performance. Recommendations are also made on the implementation of the new controller.
