Receding horizon control is a well established approach for control of systems with constraints and nonlinearities. Optimization over an infinite time-horizon, which is often computationally intractable, is therein replaced by a sequence of finite horizon problems. This paper provides a method to quantify the performance degradation that comes with this approximation. Results are provided for problems both with and without terminal costs and constraints and for both exactly and practically asymptotically stabilizable systems.
