Abstract : A convexity approach to dynamic output feedback robust model predictive control (OFRMPC) is proposed for linear parameter varying (LPV) systems with bounded disturbances. At each sampling time, the model parameters and disturbances are assumed to be unknown but bounded within pre-specified convex sets. Robust stability conditions on the augmented closed-loop system are derived using the techniques of robust positively invariant (RPI) set and the S-procedure. A convexity method reformulates the non-convex bilinear matrix inequalities (BMIs) problem as a convex optimization one such that the on-line computational burden is significantly reduced. The on-line optimized dynamic output feedback controller parameters steer the augmented states to converge within RPI sets and recursive feasibility of the optimization problem is guaranteed. Furthermore, bounds of the estimation error set are refreshed by updating the shape matrix of the future ellipsoidal estimation error set. The dynamic OFRMPC approach guarantees that the disturbance-free augmented closed-loop system (without consideration of disturbances) converges to the origin. In addition, when the system is subject to bounded disturbances, the augmented closed-loop system converges to a neighborhood of the origin. Two simulation examples are given to verify the effectiveness of the approach.
