Including Model Predictive Controls
Stabilizing and Optimizing Control for Time-Delay Systems introduces three important classes of stabilizing controls for time-delay systems: non-optimal (without performance criteria); suboptimal (including guaranteed costs); and optimal controls. Each class is treated in detail and compared in terms of prior control structures. State- and input-delayed systems are considered. The book provides a unified mathematical framework with common notation being used throughout. Receding-horizon, or model predictive, linear quadratic (LQ), linear-quadratic-Gaussian and H8 controls for time-delay systems are chosen as optimal stabilizing controls. Cost monotonicity is investigated in order to guarantee the asymptotic stability of closed-loop systems operating with such controls.
