Analysis of unconstrained nonlinear MPC schemes with time varying control horizon
TLDR
For nonlinear discrete time systems satisfying a controllability condition, we present a stability condition for model predictive control without stabilizing terminal constraints or costs. Expand

Stability and feasibility of state constrained MPC without stabilizing terminal constraints
TLDR
In this paper we investigate stability and recursive feasibility of a nonlinear receding horizon control scheme without terminal constraints and costs but imposing state and control constraints. Expand

A Distributed NMPC Scheme without Stabilizing Terminal Constraints
We consider a distributed NMPC scheme in which the individual systems are coupled via state constraints. In order to avoid violation of the constraints, the subsystems communicate their individualExpand

Quadratic costs do not always work in MPC
TLDR
We show that MPC based on quadratic stage costs may fail, i.e., there does not exist a prediction horizon length such that a (controlled) equilibrium is asymptotically stable for the MPC closed loop. Expand

Hierarchical distributed ADMM for predictive control with applications in power networks
TLDR
We propose a new Model Predictive Control (MPC) scheme based on the Alternating Direction Method of Multipliers (ADMM) for the predictive control of linear systems coupled in the objective function. Expand

Model Predictive Control of Nonholonomic Mobile Robots Without Stabilizing Constraints and Costs
TLDR
A model predictive control (MPC) scheme based on tailored nonquadratic stage cost is proposed to fulfill the regulation problem of unicycle nonholonomic mobile robots. Expand
