this work the bilinear model predictive control method is applied to control the grade change operationsin paper production plants. Because of the high nonlinearity of the grade change processes, control of the grade changeoperations has been performed manually by experienced engineers in the plants. In some cases the bilinear model canbe very effective to represent nonlinear processes. In this study a bilinear model for paper plants is identified first. Itis found that the bilinear model tracks the plant without significant discrepancy. Based on the multivariable bilinearplant model the optimal input variables are computed using the one-step ahead prediction method. Even for frequentchanges in paper grades the bilinear model predictive control scheme exhibits good control performance.
