Direct numerical solution of optimal control problems

Abstract

A class of optimization problems is the state change of a dynamic system while minimizing a functional as a quality criterion. Such problems may be solved with the help of the Hamiltonian function, which allows to find an optimal control variable for the process. Given the boundary conditions for the system state variables x, it is necessary to find initial… (More)
