The paper deals with direct search method of an optimum in the area of predictive control. Contrary to classical control tasks, the aim is not to control output of a particular on the basis of its model. The aim is optimal coverage of a given predicted course of output variable by means of a set of sources. This proposed approach can be used in multi source tasks where overall output is given as sum of outputs of individual sources. Each source is described by its characteristic behaviour and its individual set of constraints. The general approach is applied to the problem of predictive control of ancillary services in the European power energy system.
