The problem of output feedback model predictive control of discrete time systems in the presence of additive but bounded state and output disturbances is considered. The overall controller consists of two components, a stable state estimator and a tube based, robustly stabilizing model predictive controller. Earlier results are extended by allowing the estimator to be time varying. The proposed robust output feedback controller requires the online solution of a standard quadratic program. The closed loop system renders a specified invariant set robustly exponentially stable.
