This lecture deals with Model Predictive Control (MPC), a modern control concept that has been actively researched and widely applied in industry in the last years. After an introduction to the basic ideas and stability concepts of MPC, more recent and current advances in research, like tube-based MPC considering robustness issues, economic MPC, and distributed MPC are discussed.


The exam will be a written closed-book exam (i.e., keine Hilfsmittel!) and will last 90 minutes.
