A model predictive control scheme was proposed for discrete-time uncertain linear systems subject to input constraints. The cost functional to be minimised is a finite horizon quadratic cost, which describes the performance of the corresponding nominal system. The control action is specified in terms of both feedback and open-loop components. The open-loop part of the control action steers the centre of associated ellipsoids into a set around the origin, while the feedback component forces the actual system states to remain in those ellipsoids. Both feedback and open-loop control are determined online by repeatedly solving a convex optimisation problem. The predictive control scheme guarantees recursive feasibility and robust stability if the convex optimisation problem is feasible at the initial time instant. A numerical example illustrates the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
