The objective of the standard parts optimal control problem is to find a number, m, of control inputs to a given input-output system that can be used in different combinations to achieve a certain number, n, of output objectives and to do this in such a way that a specified figure-of-merit measuring the average cost of control is minimized. The problem is especially interesting when m is significantly less than n. Distributed optimization problems of this type arise naturally in connection with… CONTINUE READING
