Abstract：A fast predictive control algorithm was developed for simpler, faster MPC optimization based on an FPAA analog neural network. An FPAA analog circuit provides the quadratic programming using a continuous neural network which avoids the convergence problem of discrete neural networks in a fast, simple and flexible algorithm that uses less computational resources than previous methods. The signal constraint of the FPAA analog circuit is solved by translation and scaling. The software and hardware design of the FPAA analog neural network predictive control is presented and verified in tests that show that the algorithm is effective.
