This paper is concerned with the use of H2-control performance metrics in finding optimal actuator locations for a class of infinite-dimensional systems. Conditions that guarantee convergence of the optimal actuator location for the finite-dimensional representation of the infinite-dimensional system to the optimal actuator location of the original infinite-dimensional system are provided. Minimizing an H2-performance index, parameterized by the possible actuator locations and disturbance… 
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.
Optimal Sensor and Actuator Selection Using Balanced Model Reduction
This article exploits balanced model reduction and greedy optimization to efficiently determine sensor and actuator selections that optimize observability and controllability using greedy matrix QR pivoting on the dominant modes of the direct and adjoint balancing transformations.
Optimal Sensor Placement: A Robust Approach
This paper addresses the existence of the derivative with respect to the convective part of the solution to the Riccati equation, the well-posedness of the optimization problem, and finalizes with a range of numerical tests.
Boundary dynamic feedback control for a class of semi‐linear distributed parameter systems
The dynamic output feedback control for a class of semi-linear distributed parameter systems with a non-constant (spatially-varying) diffusion rate described by partial differential equations is

This paper considers linear quadratic performance in control of vibrations, diffusion and many other problems governed by partial differential equations, and approximations are used in controller design and thus in selection of the actuator locations.
Optimization of an integrated actuator placement and robust control scheme for distributed parameter processes subject to worst-case spatial disturbance distribution
Computer issues regarding the robustness measure for placing actuators subject to a "worst-case" disturbance are examined and a numerical example is presented to support the theoretical findings of this work.
