This paper presents a method of controlling a three-phase VSI (Voltage Source Inverter) using MPC (Model Predictive Control) designed using Laguerre functions. It also provides a model of the three-phase VSI and its resistive-inductive load and then an overview of MPC design using Laguerre functions. The biggest challenge in using MPC is the high number of computations involved, which makes online implementation difficult. On the other hand, the LMPC (Laguerre Model Predictive Control) reduces the number of computations made and so online implementation becomes possible where traditional MPC would be unteneble. The simulation results from MATLAB are also provided.
