In contrast, tracking MPC has well-established stability guarantees, but can yield poor closed-loop performance in terms of the selected economic criterion. In Zanon et al. (2016), a formal procedure to design a tracking MPC scheme so as to locally approximate the behaviour of economic MPC was proposed for the case of optimal steady-state operation. In this paper, we extend that result to the periodic case and provide a procedure to compute the tracking stage cost numerically. We illustrate our developments in a simulated example.Mario Zanonmario.zanon@imtlucca.itSébastien GrosMoritz Diehl
