Abstract

This paper analyzes stability properties of a decentralized MPC strategy. Assuming that control agents can exchange information with each other only once for every sampling interval, stability conditions on model and controller matrices are derived for the unconstrained case. Stability properties are analyzed either from a local or a global point of view and a comparison between the decentralized and the centralized control is introduced.
