Abstract : "In the research field of model predictive control (MPC), an output-feedback-type MPC method is consistently
required for controlling a wide range of constrained systems. In this paper, we propose a two-stage control
strategy for polytopic linear parameter varying (LPV) systems subject to input constraints. This strategy consists
of a modified quasi-min-max output-feedback MPC method and a novel terminal output-feedback robust control
technique. The proposed control mechanism involves the system states to be first controlled via the MPC method
to be driven into a prescribed neighborhood of the origin, and then, the terminal output-feedback robust control
method guaranteeing the input constraints is applied to make such states converge to the origin. It is also verified
that our control method guarantees the closed-loop stability and feasibility in the presence of model uncertainties
and input constraints. Finally, a numerical example is given to demonstrate its effectiveness."
