|Title of the thesis:||Machine Learning Approaches Applied to Generation of Explicit Control Laws|
|Summary:||The aim of this master thesis is to design a control law in the form of a neural network, whose behaviour is similar to an explicit model predictive control (MPC). The main advantages of explicit MPC are fast and efficient implementation, but on the other hand, the main disadvantage of explicit MPC is fixed structure of the original MPC problem, i.e. linear or quadratic cost function functions and linear constraints.
However, the neural network control law must be trained on the basis of input data, which in this case are obtained by sequentially solving the MPC problem for different initial conditions. The advantage of this approach is the possibility to get control action not only for different initial states but also for different settings of prediction horizon or weight matrices in the cost function since not only states but also weight matrices can be input parameters of the neural network control law. This, in fact, creates a suboptimal tunable controller in explicit form.|
