In this paper we propose a novel method for linear systems to obtain the explicit description of the control law that is based on dynamic programming and exploits the structure of the MPC formulation.David Muñoz de la PeñaTeodoro AlamoAlberto Bemporadalberto.bemporad@imtlucca.itEduardo F.

The algorithm solves the corresponding multi-stage min-max linear optimization problem. It is based on applying recursively a decomposition technique to solve the min-max problem via a sequence of low complexity linear programs. It is proved that the algorithm converges to the optimal solution in finite time. Simulation results are provided to compare the proposed algorithm with other approaches.

In this paper we take a different route to solve MPC problems under uncertainty. Disturbances are modelled as random variables and the expected value of the performance index is minimized. The MPC scheme that can be solved using Stochastic Programming (SP), for which several efficient solution techniques are available. We show that this formulation guarantees robust constraint fulfillment and that the expected value of the optimum cost function of the closed loop system decreases at each time step.

The main contribution is an algorithm for solving the min-max quadratic MPC problem with an arbitrary degree of approximation. The paper also introduces the "recourse horizon", which allows one to obtain a trade-off between computational complexity and performance of the control law. The results are illustrated by means of a simulation of a quadruple-tank processDavid Muñoz de la PeñaTeodoro AlamoAlberto Bemporadalberto.bemporad@imtlucca.itEduardo F.
