One of the more outstanding parameters that define the performance and stability of a concrete type of Model Predictive Control (MPC) named Dynamic Matrix Control (DMC) is the ? parameter. The objective of the paper is to analyze its effect considering a set of indexes defined to measure the characteristics of the output of an instable system when it is controlled by a DMC controller. A specific system has been chosen to make such analysis because it has demonstrated to be instable using a discretized PID controller tuned through the Ziegler-Nichols method. A total of 1,200 tests have been performed to assess the effect of the ? parameter, obtaining as conclusion supported by figures that it is a outstanding parameter.
