Robust MPC of constrained discrete-time nonlinear systems based on approximated reachable sets
(Citations: 5)
A robust MPC for constrained nonlinear systems with uncertainties is presented. Outer bounds of the reachable sets of the system are used to predict the evolution of the system under uncertainty. A method that uses zonotopes to represent the approximated reachable sets is proposed. The closed-loop system is ultimately bounded thanks to a contractive constraint that drives the system to a robust invariant set.
