Abstract : pModel Predictive Control (MPC) is one of the advanced control techniques. The ability to act prior to the setpoint change by predicting the future control actions makes MPC a better choice for control applications with predefined setpoint trajectory. This paper is a preliminary work done for the development of control system for an autonomous air-borne surveillance system. A brief comparison among the constrained, unconstrained MPCs and Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) controller is presented. Simulation study of the implementation of MPC on the QNET Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) prototype is investigated in this paper. The software platforms used in this study include MATLAB and Simulink. © 2018 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B.V./p
