  author={Shaoru Chen and Victor M. Preciado and Manfred Morari and N. Matni},
We propose a novel method for robust model predictive control (MPC) of uncertain systems subject to both polytopic model uncertainty and additive disturbances. In our method, we over-approximate the actual uncertainty by a surrogate additive disturbance which simplifies constraint tightening of the robust optimal control problem. Using System Level Synthesis, we can optimize over a robust linear state feedback control policy and the uncertainty over-approximation parameters jointly and in a…

Robust MPC for LTI Systems with Parametric and Additive Uncertainty: A Novel Constraint Tightening Approach

This work proposes a novel optimization-based constraint tightening strategy around a predicted nominal trajectory which utilizes set based bounds for each component of the model uncertainty which proves robust satisfaction of the imposed constraints by the resulting MPC controller in closed-loop with the uncertain system.

System Level Synthesis-based Robust Model Predictive Control through Convex Inner Approximation

This work proves the recursive feasibility of the proposed MPC controller and input-to-state stability of the origin for the closed-loop system when an adaptive horizon strategy is used, and considerably reduces conservatism when compared with existing SLS-based and tube-based robust MPC methods.

Robust constrained model predictive control using linear matrix inequalities

The primary disadvantage of current design techniques for model predictive control (MPC) is their inability to explicitly deal with model uncertainty. In this paper, the authors address the

Robust Closed-loop Model Predictive Control via System Level Synthesis

This paper uses the System Level Synthesis (SLS) framework to reformulate constrained OCPs over closed-loop system responses, and shows that this allows it to transparently account for norm bounded additive disturbances and LTV model uncertainty by computing robust state feedback policies.

Recursively feasible Robust MPC for linear systems with additive and multiplicative uncertainty using optimized polytopic dynamics

The aim of this paper is to reformulate the conditions of the polytopic dynamics such that the invariance conditions are both necessary and sufficient, and to deploy an overall robust MPC scheme using the poly topic dynamics without the requirement that the system dynamics are known over the prediction horizon.

Robust Receding Horizon Control - analysis & synthesis

In this paper, a combined Receding Horizon Control (RHC) analysis and synthesis technique for constrained linear time-invariant systems subject to polytopic or additive uncertainty is introduced. The

A Simple Robust MPC for Linear Systems with Parametric and Additive Uncertainty

This work proposes a simple and computationally efficient approach for designing a robust Model Predictive Controller for constrained uncertain linear systems and proves the controller's recursive feasibility and stability of the origin.

Parameterized Tube Model Predictive Control

This paper develops a parameterized tube model predictive control (MPC) synthesis method that optimizes parameterized, Minkowski decomposable, state and control tubes and an associated, fully separable, nonlinear, control policy.
