Abstract

The paper describes application of multivariable Generalized Predictive Controller to supervise the set-point transition in a Combined Cycle power plant. In power systems, all power generation units are usually supplied together with a proprietary low level control system. Thus, the GPC controller is located on the higher level adjusting set-points to local control loops. Simulation results show that this approach enables significant reduction of transient period overshoots and may even compensate for inaccurate tuning of low level controllers.
