To solving nonlinear control problems and especially nonlinear optimal control problems (NOCP), classical methods are not usually efficient. In this paper we introduce a new approach for solving this class of problems by using Nonlinear Programming Problem (NLPP). First, we transfer the original problem to a new problem in form of calculus of variations. Then we discretize the new problem and solve it by using NLPP packages. The solution of the NLPP is used to obtain the optimal control and… CONTINUE READING
