Robust Model Predictive Control

Organizer: Sebastian Engell

Model-predictive control (MPC) of dynamic systems has become a standard control strategy especially for multivariate systems with constraints. In MPC, a mathematical model of a dynamic system is used to predict the behavior of the system and a sequence of optimal control inputs is obtained by minimizing a pre-defined cost function subject to constraints. One of the main challenges of model-based control strategies is that real world systems are uncertain or affected by disturbances, and it is well known that neglecting the uncertainty may significantly deteriorate the performance and might destroy the stability properties of optimization-based control schemes. Therefore, it is crucial to develop approaches that take the presence of uncertainties into account. Several methods have been presented in the last years but there still exists no approach that simultaneously is not overly conservative, is real-time implementable, can guarantee stability and recursive feasibility and is applicable to large scale or nonlinear systems.

This minisymposium presents some of the recent advances for dealing with uncertainty in the framework of model predictive control.
