Abstract: This paper seeks to estimate through Artificial Neural Networks the future behavior of temperature and humidity inside an incubator. This goal is motivated by the observation that the model-based predictive control is an interesting alternative for the generation of control signals of a neonatal incubator since: (i) it seeks to optimize a performance criterion that considers the future behavior of this controller, and (ii) restrictions may be imposed on future control signals. These two features can make more safe and comfortable the microclimate inside the device for the newborn: variables such as temperature and humidity can be better kept within the limits of technical standards such as the NBR IEC 601-2-19 and its amendment No. 1, NBR IEC 60601-2-19-2000. However, one predictive model of the process to be controlled must first be obtained. The obtained neural model has accuracy in predicting the incubator behavior one time step forward compatible with the technical standard, and i t is ready to be applied in a predictive control structure.
