Hi I am trying to use Simulink mpc toolbox for the first time. I tried to run the simplest example I found http://www.mathworks.co.uk/help/mpc/examples/designing-a-model-predictive-controller-in-simulink.html but I cannot linearize the plant while I try to design the controller. It seems a problem related with the compiler but I have Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 Professional installed on my computer so it should work.
After running this code:
if ~mpcchecktoolboxinstalled('simulink')
disp('Simulink(R) is required to run this example.')
return
end
open_system('mpc_linearization');
open_system('mpc_linearization/MPC Controller');
and clicking "design..." and specify 1/1/1 and clicking "ok"
It gives this error:
Error using construct_error (line 110)
Library failed to build. Cannot continue build process.
- The model mpc_linearization could not be compiled to extract the operating point information. Please sync the operating point information from the model before linearizing the model.
Any idea on how I can solve this? My MATLAB version is 8.1.0.604 (R2013a) My operating system: Microsoft Windows 7 Version 6.1 (Build 7601: Service Pack 1)
Thank you
Sara

Hi Alexander, yes this was some time ago but if I remember correctly I installed Microsoft Visual Studio and then the simulation run smoothly. Good luck

However, the original poster had Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 Professional which is part of Visual Studio Professional. So which version of VS is needed for the code to work?

Best thing to do is to contact support. Hard to tell with limited info what the exact issue is. Thanks
