In this paper, an infinite-horizon optimal tracking control scheme is proposed for a class of nonlinear discrete-time switched systems. First, via system transformation, the optimal tracking problem is converted into designing an optimal regulator for the tracking error dynamics. And then, with convergence analysis in terms of value function and control policy, the iterative adaptive dynamic programming (ADP) algorithm is introduced to obtain the infinite-horizon optimal tracking controller… CONTINUE READING
