Many tuning strategies for model predictive control algorithms have been proposed in the literature depending on the conditionality of the system matrix and the choice of its cost function. In this paper, the properties of a new predictive controller termed extended predictive control (EPC) are investigated and presented. These properties are important to the understanding of the unique tuning strategy of EPC. EPC is based on the assumption of infinite horizon which is preferable to guarantee stability. The EPC properties are derived using a second order plant with relatively large dead time and is applicable to any open-loop stable system. The tuning strategy of EPC was applied to generalized predictive control with good results.
