SADCO project subject: The formulation and online solution of optimal control problems. Robust nonlinear MPC

Model predictive control (MPC) is an approach to control feedback design, based on the solution, at each controller update step, of an optimal control problem. This approach has shown to be a viable approach to nonlinear optimal control. However, when MPC faces uncertainties and disturbances, several difficulties arise, and in practice, only suboptimal robust control strategies can be achieved. In the framework of this project we would like to investigate some aspects of robust nonlinear MPC, including stability and suboptimality estimates, as well as to develop new MPC algorithms that take account of the limited time, between control update times, available for computation.
