An efficient robust constrained model predictive control algorithm with a time varying terminal constraint set is developed for systems with model uncertainty and input constraints. The approach is novel in that it off-line constructs a continuum of terminal constraint sets and on-line achieves robust stability by using a relatively short control horizon (even N = 0) with a time varying terminal constraint set. This algorithm not only dramatically reduces the on-line computation but also significantly enlarges the size of the allowable set of initial conditions. Moreover, this control scheme retains the unconstrained optimal performance in the neighborhood of the equilibrium. The controller design is illustrated through a benchmark problem.
