Optimal control of a 2D diffusion-advection process with a team of mobile actuators under jointly optimal guidance

  title={Optimal control of a 2D diffusion-advection process with a team of mobile actuators under jointly optimal guidance},
  author={Sheng Cheng and D. Paley},
This paper describes an optimization framework to control a distributed parameter system (DPS) using a team of mobile actuators. The framework simultaneously seeks optimal control of the DPS and optimal guidance of the mobile actuators such that a cost function associated with both the DPS and the mobile actuators is minimized subject to the dynamics of each. The cost incurred from controlling the DPS is linear-quadratic, which is transformed into an equivalent form as a quadratic term… Expand

Optimal control of a 1D diffusion process with a team of mobile actuators under jointly optimal guidance
It is shown that, under certain conditions, any guidance that steers the mobile actuators out of the spatial domain is nonoptimal, which implies that optimal guidance is guaranteed to restrict the actuators to the domain even without explicit constraints. Expand
Optimal guidance of a team of mobile actuators for controlling a 1D diffusion process with unknown initial conditions
The solution of the proposed problem is suboptimal for the same problem with a known initial condition-even for the worst-case initial condition, suggesting the guidance strategy can be implemented when the initial condition of the diffusion process is unknown. Expand
A study of optimal actuator placement for control of diffusion
Several different criteria are compared in the context of controlling diffusion on a two-dimensional region and it appears that the optimal location is strongly dependent on diffusivity - optimal locations tend to be in locations of low Diffusivity. Expand
