In this study, a new Model Predictive Controller (MPC) parameters tuning strategy is proposed using a LabVIEW-based perturbed Particle Swarm Optimization (pPSO). This original LabVIEW implementation of this metaheuristic algorithm is firstly validated on some test functions in order to show its efficiency and validity. The optimization results are compared with the standard PSO approach. The parameters tuning problem, i.e. the weighting factors on the output error and input increments of the MPC algorithm, is then formulated and systematically solved, using the proposed LabVIEW pPSA algorithm. The case of a Magnetic Levitation (MAGLEV) system is investigated to illustrate the robustness and superiority of the proposed pPSO-based tuning MPC approach. All obtained simulation results, as well as the statistical analysis tests for the formulated control problem with and without constraints, are discussed and compared with the Genetic Algorithm Optimization (GAO)-based technique in order to improve the effectiveness of the proposed pPSA-based MPC tuning methodology derouiche:hal-01347041.
