Abstract:
In this paper we develop a scenario-based Distributed Model Predictive Control (DMPC) approach for large-scale freeway networks. The uncertainties in a large-scale freeway network are categorized into global uncertainties for the overall network and local uncertainties for subnetworks. A reduced scenario tree is proposed, consisting of global scenarios and a reduced local scenario tree. For handling uncertainties in the scenario-based DMPC problem, a min-max setting is considered. A case study is implemented for investigating the scenario-based DMPC approach, and the results show that in the presence of uncertainties it is effective in improving the control performance with the queue length constraint being satisfied.
