Developing graphical user interface for a model predicative controller in an ABB software environment

Abstract
A project at ABB CRC in Västerås aims at investigating the use of an MPC algorithm as a control module in 800xA. For users to interact with such a controller, faceplates need to be designed. This report describes the process, and results of designing such faceplates using among other the ABB Graphics Builder application. The challenge with the design work was mainly to create new and unique components and layout that seem intuitive to the user and at the same time looks and works similar to existing standards. Most of the planned faceplates were created and are working as intended, although a few functions are left for future work.
