Abstract In this note, a new formulation of Model Predictive Control (MPC) framework with no stability-related terminal constraint is proposed and its stability is proved under mild standard assumptions. The novelty in the formulation lies in the use of time-varying monotonically increasing stage cost penalty. The main result is that the 0 -reachability prediction horizon can always be made stabilizing without any terminal constraints provided that the increasing rate of the penalty is made… Expand
