The proposed algorithm of extended predictive control (EPC) represents an exact method for removing the ill-conditioning in the system matrix by developing a unique weighting structure for any control horizon. The main feature of the EPC algorithm is that it uses the condition number of the system matrix to evaluate a single tuning parameter that provides a specified closed-loop response. Robust analysis demonstrated that EPC is more robust in comparison with move-suppressed and m-shifted predictive controllers in all aspects of process variation in gain, delay, and time-constant ratios. Tuning of EPC is effective and simple since there is a direct relationship between closed-loop performance and its tuning parameter.
