A Robust Controller for Scalar, Autonomous Optimal Control Problems
Is it possible to exert control on a physical system without detailed knowledge
of its open-loop dynamics? Recently, this author showed
that a special dynamic control law can accomplish this feat for a certain
class of nonlinear systems, provided accurate and reliable data of the
output variables, including their time derivatives, are made available
to the controller. This paper generalizes this theoretical idea to a class
of scalar autonomous optimal control problems.
