This paper investigates the optimal control problem of a particular class of hybrid dynamical systems with controlled switching. Given a prespecified sequence of active subsystems, the objective is to seek both the continuous control input and the discrete switching instants that minimize a performance index over a finite time horizon. Based on the use of the calculus of variations, necessary conditions for optimality are derived. An efficient algorithm, based on nonlinear optimizationā¦Ā CONTINUE READING
