Abstract
The idea for this work starts from the situation in which a metaheuristic-based algorithm has already been developed in order to solve an optimal control problem. This algorithm yields an offline "optimal" solution. On the other hand, the Receding Horizon Control (RHC) structure can be implemented if a process model is available. This work underlines some of the practical aspects of joining the RHC to an existing metaheuristic-based algorithm in order to obtain a closed-loop control structure that can be further used in real-time control. The result is a systematic procedure that integrates a given metaheuristic-based algorithm into a RHC structure.
