In this study, we use a wavelet neural network with a feedforward component and a model predictive controller for online nonlinear system identification over a communication network. The wavelet neural network (WNN) performs the online identification of the nonlinear system. The model predictive controller (MPC) uses the model to predict the future outputs of the system over an extended prediction horizon and calculates the optimal future inputs by minimizing a controller cost function.

Simulation results show that the MPC with extended prediction horizon can effectively control the system in the presence of fixed or random network delay.
