Application of Generalized Predictive Control to a Peristaltic Pump
Peristaltic pump is widely used in medical practice and chemical industry. But in some applications, which ask for small flow and high precision, a small jump of output to the peristaltic pump is quite serious. Therefore, it restricts the use and performance of peristaltic pump. This paper tries to introduce generalized predictive control method to the system of peristaltic pump. Besides, the results of simulation and experiment show that the static error of system using the mentioned method is smaller than traditional PID control which asks for a continuous output, so as to the output error when the system works at the small titration.
