Toward a geometric theory in the time-minimal control of chemical batch reactors. (English) Zbl 0882.49024
The subject of the paper is the time-optimal control of a chemical batch reactor. This optimisation problem has been solved with the use of Pontryagin’s maximum principle. As controlled variable there has been taken a derivative of the reactor interior temperature. Using the time-optimal solution, there has been created a concept of time-optimal feedback-system. The above concept corresponds to the idea of regular synthesis defined by P. Brunowsky [SIAM J. Control 12, 624-634 (1974; Zbl 0301.49004)].
