Free time and mixed constrained optimal control problems
We consider free time optimal control problems with pointwise set control constraints u(t) ∈ U(t). Here we derive necessary conditions of optimality for those problem where the set U(t) is defined by equality and inequality ...
A maximum principle for constrained infinite horizon dynamic control systems
This article presents and discusses a maximum principle for infinite horizon constrained optimal control problems with a cost functional depending on the state at the final time. The main feature of these optimality ...
Necessary conditions for optimal impulsive control problems
A Maximum Principle is derived for a class of optimal control problems arising in midcourse guidance, in which certain controls are represented by measures and, the state trajectories are functions of bounded variation. ...
A maximum principle for infinite time asymptotically stable impulsive dynamic control systems
We consider an infinite horizon optimal impulsive control problems for which a given cost function is minimized by choosing control strategies driving the state to a point in a given closed set C ∞. We present necessary ...
Existence of Solutions for Optimal Control Problems on Time Scales whose States are Absolutely Continuous
(Sociedade Brasileira de Matemática Aplicada e Computacional, 2016-04-01)
ABSTRACT This paper considers a class of optimal control problems on time scales described by dynamic equations on time scales. For this class, the states are absolutely continuous. We have established sufficient conditions ...
Optimizing model predictive control of an industrial distillation column
(PERGAMON-ELSEVIER SCIENCE LTD, 2011)
The main scope of this work is the implementation of an MPC that integrates the control and the economic optimization of the system. The two problems are solved simultaneously through the modification of the control cost ...
