A new computational strategy for optimal control problem with a cost on changing control

© 2016 American Institute of Mathematical Sciences. All rights reserved.In this paper, we consider a class of optimal control problems where the cost function is the sum of the terminal cost, the integral cost and the full variation of control. Here, the full variation of a control is defined as the sum of the total variations of its components. By using the control parameterization technique in conjunction with the time scaling transformation, we develop a new computational algorithm for solving this type of optimal control problem. Rigorous convergence analysis is provided for the new method. For illustration, we solve two numerical examples to show the effectiveness of the proposed method.

The effect of physiotherapy on the prevention and treatment of ventilator-associated pneumonia for intensive care patients with acquired brain injuryPatman, Shane Michael (2005)Background: Ventilator-associated pneumonia is a major cause of morbidity and mortality for patients in an intensive care unit. Once present, ventilator-associated pneumonia is known to increase the duration of mechanical ...
Li, Bin (2011)In this thesis, we consider several types of optimal control problems with constraints on the state and control variables. These problems have many engineering applications. Our aim is to develop efficient numerical methods ...
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 ...
