Optimal control of impulsive hybrid systems. (English) Zbl 1163.49038

Summary: We deal with optimization techniques for a class of hybrid systems that comprise continuous controllable dynamics and impulses (jumps) in the state. Using the mathematical techniques of distributional derivatives and impulse differential equations, we rewrite the original hybrid control system as a system with autonomous location transitions. For the obtained auxiliary dynamical system and the corresponding Optimal Control Problem (OCP), we apply the Lagrange approach and derive the reduced gradient formulas. Moreover, we formulate necessary optimality conditions for the above hybrid OCPs, and discuss the newly elaborated Pontryagin-type maximum principle for impulsive OCPs. As in the case of the conventional OCPs, the proposed first order optimization techniques provide a basis for constructive computational algorithms.
