On the continuous dependence of trajectories of bilinear systems on controls and its applications. (English) Zbl 0654.93028
Bilinear, continuous-time, finite-dimensional, nonstationary control systems are studied. Under some assumptions concerning the smoothness of the matrices of coefficients, an analytical representation of dependence of trajectories of systems on control is established. On the basis of this representation, an estimate for continuous dependence of trajectories of a system with single input on control is developed.
Moreover, a numerical method for searching the optimal control of time- independent bilinear systems is described, which is a modification of the well-known gradient projection method. This modification is based on an estimate proved before. Some properties of the attainable set of bilinear systems are also analyzed. Finally, an illustrative numerical example is given. The results presented in the paper extend to the case of time- dependent bilinear systems the results given by the author [Kybernetika 23, 198-213 (1987; Zbl 0638.93035)].
