Hybrid functions approach for nonlinear constrained optimal control problems. (English) Zbl 1239.49043
Summary: In this paper, a new numerical method for solving the nonlinear constrained optimal control with quadratic performance index is presented. The method is based upon hybrid functions approximation. The properties of hybrid functions consisting of block-pulse functions and Bernoulli polynomials are presented. The operational matrix of integration is introduced. This matrix is then utilized to reduce the solution of the nonlinear constrained optimal control to a nonlinear programming one to which existing well-developed algorithms may be applied. Illustrative examples are included to demonstrate the validity and applicability of the technique.
