Abstract

In this paper, a nonlinear model predictive controller (NMPC) with input saturation is designed and modified for a rehabilitative exoskeleton for paraplegic individuals. An analytical solution for the NMPC optimization problem is obtained for small prediction horizons (N<3). Additionally, an iterative solution for longer horizon problems (N≥3) is performed by employing the linear time-varying approach and using the active set method to include the constraints. Real-time guarantee for the implementation of both NMPC solutions is derived, and the robustness and stability of the closed-loop system are discussed. Finally, the proposed controller is successfully simulated and implemented on a real exoskeleton robot with 1 ms sampling time. The results show that the proposed controller is more effective than PID and adaptive fuzzy controllers.
