This paper deals with the use of model predictive controllers (MPC) for controlling fractional order plants. MPC is an industry standard due to its intrinsic ability to handle input and state constraints for large scale multivariable plants. The method is illustrated with Generalized Predictive Control (GPC) and two low order discrete approximations of the fractional order plant (the so-called Chebyshev-Padé and Rational Chebyshev approximations) as model. It is shown how stability, performance and constraints handling can be achieved with ease when dealing with fractional order plants. It is also shown how robustness can be improved by means of a prefilter.
