    This paper deals with the disturbance rejection problem for discrete-time linear systems having time-varying state delays and control constraints. The study proposes a novel receding horizon H∞ control method utilizing a linear matrix inequality based optimization algorithm which is solved in each step of run-time. The proposed controller attenuates disturbances having bounded energies on controlled output and ensures the closed-loop stability and dissipation while meeting the physical control input constraints. The originality of the work lies on the extension of the idea of the well-known H∞ receding horizon control technique developed for linear discrete-time systems to interval time-delay systems having time-varying delays. The efficiency of the proposed method is illustrated through simulation studies that are carried out on a couple of benchmark problems.
