Model Predictive Controllers (MPC) are effective control strategies widely used in the industry. The desirable MPC performance requires appropriate tuning of the controller parameters. However, the MPC tuning parameters are related to the closed loop characteristics in a complex and nonlinear manner, so the tuning procedure is an intricate problem, which has received much attention in recent decades. In this paper, the effects of each tuning parameter on the closed loop behavior are studied. Then, the issue of MPC tuning problem is considered and a review of the available tuning methods are provided. Modern tuning strategies are also considered. The emphasis of this paper is on theoretical tuning strategies which lead to closed form tuning equations that can be used in closed loop analysis. Finally, a simulation study is employed to have a comparative study on some closed form tuning equations and the advantages and disadvantages of each method is clarified.
