This paper applies a quasi-ARMAX modeling technique, recently presented in the literature, to a process control framework. The use of this quasi-ARMAX modeling technique in nonlinear model predictive control (NMPC) formulations applied to simple nonlinear process control examples is investigated. The quasi-ARMAX predictor can be interpreted as a neuro-fuzzy predictor, and this neuro-fuzzy predictor is computationally straightforward and has showed excellent prediction capabilities. The predictor is thus well suited for NMPC purposes. Furthermore, the parameters of the neuro-fuzzy model can be argued to have explicit meaning, thus making the procedure of tuning the NMPC system more transparent when using the neuro-fuzzy predictor.
