Economic Model Predictive Control has recently gained popularity due to its ability to directly optimize a given performance criterion, while enforcing constraint satisfaction for nonlinear systems. Recent research has developed both numerical algorithms and stability analysis for the undiscounted case. The introduction of a discount factor in the cost, however, can be desirable in some cases of interest, e.g., economics, stochastically terminating processes, Markov decision processes, etc… Expand

Strict dissipativity for discrete time discounted optimal control problems
This paper introduces a notion of discounted strict dissipativity and shows that this implies various properties including the existence of available storage functions, required supply functions, and robustness of optimal equilibria and that optimally controlled systems, derived from a discounted cost function, yield practically asymptotically stable equilibrio.

Stability of infinite-horizon optimal control with discounted cost
This work provides conditions under which a global asymptotic stability property is ensured for the corresponding undiscounted problem, and shows that this property is semiglobally and practically preserved in the discounted case, where the adjustable parameter is the discount factor. Expand
On Necessity and Robustness of Dissipativity in Economic Model Predictive Control
This paper investigates whether this dissipativity property is not only sufficient, but also necessary for optimal steady-state operation, and provides a robustness analysis of the dissipativityproperty with respect to changes in the constraint set. Expand
Periodic Optimal Control, Dissipativity and MPC
It is proved that optimal P-periodic operation and MPC stability directly follow, similarly to the steady-state case, which can be seen as a special case of the proposed framework. Expand
Asymptotic Stability of Economic NMPC: The Importance of Adjoints
Abstract Recently, it has been shown in a sampled-data continuous-time setting that under certain regularity assumptions a simple linear end penalty enforces exponential stability of EconomicExpand
On a discounted notion of strict dissipativity
Abstract: Recent results in the literature have provided connections between the so-called turnpike property, near optimality of closed-loop solutions using model predictive control schemes, andExpand
Stabilization of strictly dissipative discrete time systems with discounted optimal control
Conditions based on strict dissipativity that ensure that the optimally controlled system is asymptotically stable or practically asymptonically stable are presented and shown to be complementary to recently proposed conditions based on a detectability property. Expand
Local turnpike analysis using local dissipativity for discrete time discounted optimal control
Recent results in the literature have provided connections between the socalled turnpike property, near optimality of closed-loop solutions, and strict dissipativity. Motivated by applications inExpand
A Lyapunov function for economic MPC without terminal conditions
Under suitable conditions, consisting of strict dissipativity, the turnpike property and appropriate continuity properties, a practical Lyapunov function exists for the MPC closed loop, given by the optimal value function of the optimal control problem with rotated stage costs originating from the dissipativity condition.

Indefinite linear MPC and approximated economic MPC for nonlinear systems
The stability proof for economic model predictive control (MPC) relies on strict dissipativity, which is in general hard to check. In this contribution, we will first analyze the linear quadraticExpand
