The basis of dynamic programming is described. It is a method for finding the best way to control a system when that system can be controlled by its inputs. As an example, the optimal (or best) control of an electromagnetic brake retarder is derived. In this example the current to the brake retarder is the input being controlled. APL is shown to be a(More)
This paper provides a core of APL algorithms for control system development and demonstrates their use by solving a typical control problem. In doing so it outlines useful numerical techniques for simulating dynamic systems and for solving some of the central equations of control theory. Although some sections of the paper are addressed to APL2 users, the(More)
