Unlike the well-known bang-bang control for continuous plants, the closed-form time optimal control for discrete time plants was obtained only recently (Z. Gao, 2004, J. Han, 1999). It is shown in this paper that this new discrete time optimal control (DTOC) law offers a practical alternative to bang-bang control. A particularly interesting property of DTOC… (More)
