    Many processes, even being of a continuous nature, involve in its operation signals or rules different from the classical continuous variables represented by real variables and modelled by DAE. In practice they include on/off valves or other binary actuators, are subjected to logical operational rules, or are mixed with sequential operations. As a result, classical control does not fit very well with the overall operation of the plant. In this paper we consider the problem of hybrid control from a predictive control perspective, showing in a practical non trivial example with changing process structure, how the problem can be stated and solved.
