Model Predictive Control, Cost Controllability, and Homogeneity

The stage cost is proposed to be constructed based on the homogeneous approximation and it is rigorously shown that applying MPC yields an asymp-totically stable closed-loop behavior if the homogenous approximation is asymptotically null controllable.

On quadratic stage costs for mobile robots in model predictive control

We consider nonholonomic mobile robots. Since the system is finite time controllable, it is stabilizable by a receding horizon control scheme with purely quadratic stage costs if an infinite

Stability and performance analysis of NMPC: Detectable stage costs and general terminal costs

This work provides a stability and performance analysis for nonlinear model predictive control schemes that is applicable to positive semi-definite (detectable) cost functions, provides tight bounds using a linear programming analysis, and allows for a seamless integration of general positive- definite terminal cost functions in the analysis.

A Nonlinear Model Predictive Control Framework Using Reference Generic Terminal Ingredients

A quasi infinite horizon nonlinear model predictive control scheme for tracking of generic reference trajectories, which is applicable to nonlinear systems, which are locally incrementally stabilizable and can be used to design nonlinear MPC schemes that reliably operate under online changing conditions.

Interplay of MPC and the Viability Kernel

This paper considers the problem of steering a state and input constrained differential drive robot to a desired position and orientation using model-predictive control (MPC) and finds that the horizon increases as initial conditions approach the boundary and, in particular, non-differentiable parts of the boundary.

An algorithm is developed which allows to reduce the required optimization horizon length while maintaining asymptotic stability or a desired performance bound and is further elaborated in order to enhance its robustness properties.
