An Optimization Approach to State-Delay Identification
MetadataShow full item record
We consider a nonlinear delay-differential system with unknown state-delays. Our goal is to identify these state-delays using experimental data. To this end, we formulate a dynamic optimization problem in which the state-delays are decision variables and the cost function measures the discrepancy between predicted and observed system output. We then show that the gradient of this problem's cost function can be computed by solving an auxiliary delay-differential system. By exploiting this result, the state-delay identification problem can be solved efficiently using a gradient-based optimization method.

Chai, Q.; Loxton, Ryan; Teo, Kok Lay (ah Nge); Yang, C. (2013)We consider a general nonlinear time-delay system with state-delays as control variables. The problem of determining optimal values for the state-delays to minimize overall system cost is a non-standard optimal control ...
Loxton, Ryan Christopher (2010)In this thesis, we develop numerical methods for solving five nonstandard optimal control problems. The main idea of each method is to reformulate the optimal control problem as, or approximate it by, a nonlinear programming ...
