In this paper, we build upon the results presented in the companion paper " Preview and Feedforward in Model Predictive Control: Conceptual and Design Issues " , where we have outlined a novel MPC strategy (PF-MPC) which implements feedforward and preview action. In this paper we embellish the core algorithm so as to provide a certificate of robust(More)
