This paper studies stability of Model Predictive Control for systems with a finite input alphabet. Since this kind of systems may present a steady-state error under closedloop control, the forms is on stability in the sense of ultimate boundedness of solutions. To derive sufficient conditions for stability, two different approaches are presented. The first one approximates the finite input alphabet via saturation-control allowing us to analyze the problem from a robust control perspective. In… CONTINUE READING
