Convex design control for practical nonlinear systems
(2014)This paper describes a new control scheme for approximately optimal control (AOC) of nonlinear systems, convex control design (ConvCD). The key idea of ConvCD is to transform the approximate optimal control problem into a ...

Disturbance attenuation of uncertain beams
(Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, 2008)In control theory disturbance attenuation is analyzed by the H8 theory and through certain dissipation inequalities. Even though this theory has been applied in controlling deterministic vibrating structures the control ...

Dynamic bandwidth allocation in broadbandISDN using a multileveloptimal control approach
(1995)This paper presents a novel scheme for the dynamic allocation of bandwidth at the virtual path level in BISDNs. A fluid flow model is developed to describe the time varying mean behaviour of a virtual path and serves as ...

Infinite horizon average cost dynamic programming subject to ambiguity on conditional distribution
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2015)This paper addresses the optimality of stochastic control strategies based on the infinite horizon average cost criterion, subject to total variation distance ambiguity on the conditional distribution of the controlled ...

Lie algebraic methods in optimal control of stochastic systems with exponentialofintegral sample cost: Examples
(1998)The optimal control of partially observed stochastic systems with exponentialofintegralsample cost is considered. The concept of sufficient statistic algebra is introduced to construct finitedimensional controllers. ...

Article
Optimal control of uncertain stochastic systems subject to total variation distance uncertainty
(2012)This paper is concerned with optimization of uncertain stochastic systems, in which uncertainty is described by a total variation distance constraint between the measures induced by the uncertain systems and the measure ...

A scalable iterative convex design for nonlinear systems
(2012)A recently developed control scheme for approximately optimal control of nonlinear systems is the socalled Convex Control Design (ConvCD) methodology, that transforms the control problem of generic nonlinear systems into ...

Article
Stochastic minimum principle for partially observed systems subject to continuous and jump diffusion processes and driven by relaxed controls
(2013)In this paper, we consider nonconvex control problems of stochastic differential equations driven by relaxed controls adapted, in the weak star sense, to a current of sigma algebras generated by observable processes. We ...

Article
Timevarying optimal disturbance minimization in presence of plant uncertainty
(2009)The optimal robust disturbance rejection problem plays an important role in feedback control theory. Here, its timevarying version is solved explicit ly in terms of duality and operator theory. In particular, the optimum ...
