Optimal Control of a Constrained Bilinear Dynamic System

Optimal Control of a Constrained Bilinear Dynamic System In this paper, an optimal feedback, for a free vibrating semi-active controlled plant, is derived. The problem is represented as a constrained optimal control problem of a single input, free vibrating bilinear system, and a quadratic performance index. It is solved by using Krotov’s method and to this end, a novel sequence of Krotov functions that suits the addressed problem, is derived. The solution is arranged as an algorithm, which requires solving the states equation and a differential Lyapunov equation in each iteration. An outline of the proof for the algorithm convergence is provided. Emphasis is given on semi-active control design for stable free vibrating plants with a single control input. It is shown that a control force, derived by the proposed technique, obeys the physical constraint related with semi-active actuator force without the need of any arbitrary signal clipping. The control efficiency is demonstrated with a numerical example. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Optimization Theory and Applications Springer Journals
