This article presents a Model Predictive Control (MPC) algorithm based on integral action. Level control in process industry is challenging because of nonlinearity presents in the shape of the tank, actuators etc. The conical tank system is taken as benchmark process in the present study. It is Single Input Single Output (SISO) nonlinear system whose cross-sectional area varies along the tank height. The control algorithm is simulated using MATLAB m-file environment. The effectiveness of the predictive algorithm is also presented by experimentally validating it on a conical tank system at different heights. The interfacing of m-file with the experimental setup is the challenging task faced during the initial stage of experimental validation.
