Output feedback distributed model predictive control with inherent robustness properties
We consider robust output feedback distributed model predictive control (DMPC). The proposed controller is based on the results in  in which nominal stability and feasibility was proven for a DMPC-formulation without terminal constraint set or terminal cost in the optimization. We extend these results to show robust stability under state feedback as well as output feedback when dynamics and measurements are affected by bounded noise. The provided numerical example suggests that the region of attraction without terminal constraint set may be significantly larger than if a terminal constraint set is used.
