The objective of this work is to extend the approximate dynamic programming (ADP) framework to online control of distributed parameter systems. The ADP framework involves using suboptimal control policies to identify the relevant regions of the state space and to generate a cost-to-go function approximation applicable in this region. We present model-based value iteration and model-free Q-learning approaches for feedback control of an adiabatic plug flow reactor. The state dimension is reduced… CONTINUE READING
