"The purpose of this thesis is the study of a predictive control system by simulating it on an analog computer. Logic criteria for step reference inputs are derived by the phase- plane technique, and tie corresponding logic network designed to bring the error and error rate of the controlled system toward zero in the least possible time.
The responses of the predictive control system for step, ramp, sinusoidal and exponential reference inputs are investigated with primary emphasis placed on the rise time and overshoot for several values of step inputs of the reference.
Finally, recommendations are made for further investigations in the areas which are deemed to be vital in helping to theorize and design a more general type of predictive- control system"--Abstract, page 2.
