# Are linear controllers inadequate for nonminimum phase systems?

Based on the following publication:

Kouro, S., Perez, M.A., Rodriguez, J., Llor, A.M. and Young, H.A., 2015. Model predictive control: MPC's role in the evolution of power electronics. IEEE Industrial Electronics Magazine, 9(4), pp.8-21.

Available here, it is said that:

MPC can be also used with nonminimum phase plants, which usually appear in rectifiers connected to the grid, avoiding linear controllers, which, in these cases, have a very restricted performance [76], [79], [83].

Dose it mean that linear controllers are not adequate for nonminimum phase systems? If yes, why?
