dc.description.abstract In this paper, an economic Model Predictive Control (MPC) is used to investigate the effects that arise from the model mismatch between the control and the system. It is shown that the average electrical power is affected by the modelling discrepancies, but that the performance is still acceptable. A move-blocking technique is incorporated into the structure of the control horizon of the MPC, where the move-blocking decreases the computational burden whilst maintaining system performance, hence drastically reducing the optimisation solving time. The MPC with the move-blocking incorporated is then tested on the most significant mismatch, where it is shown that the control horizon of the MPC can be drastically reduced while maintaining system performance. en
