A usual argument against GPC is its demand for processing power. In
industry, however, this is not a serious argument if better control
performance can be reached. As the development of new processors
with increased performance takes place rather rapidly, the lag of
processing power never was a long-term issue to prevent new algorithms
from being introduced. This paper presents a practical realization
of Generalized Predictive Control (GPC) for field oriented control
of induction machines. The results are compared with conventional
PI-control. Considering the strong real time conditions of drive
applications, implementation aspects according to the great calculation
effort in case of GPC are discussed to contribute to closing the
gap between theory and practice.
