Dinesh Krishnamoorthy, Mandar Thombre, Sigurd Skogestad, Johannes Jäschke
2018 IFAC-PapersOnLine  
A main assumption in many works considering multistage model predictive control (MPC) is that discrete realizations of the uncertainty are chosen a-priori and that the scenario tree is given.  ...  Using this approach, the scenarios are carefully selected such that the conservativeness of the solution can be reduced while still maintaining robustness towards constraint feasibility.  ...  One such closed-loop optimization strategy is the multistage scenario MPC also known as feedback minmax MPC or scenario-tree MPC (Scokaert and Mayne, 1998; .  ...
