A nonlinear general predictive controller (NLGPC) is described which is based on the use of a Hammerstein model within a recursive control algorithm. A key contribution of the paper is the use of a novel, one-step simple root solving procedure for the Hammerstein model, this being a fundamental part of the overall tuning algorithm. A comparison is made between NLGPC and nonlinear deadbeat control (NLDBC) using the same one-step nonlinear components, in order to investigate NLGPC advantages and disadvantages.
