### Is the viscosity solution of Hamilton-Jacobi equation of practical use in optimal control?

My understanding is, given an optimal control problem, one can show that the optimal cost satisfies a Hamilton-Jacobi PDE and use dynamic programming to figure out the optimal control. However, ...

### LQR vs. Numerical Optimal Control

I'm a little confused by the differences between LQR control and numerical optimal control (such as direct multiple shooting, direct collocation and pseudospectral optimal control). It seems that LQR ...

### Zero overshoot criterion from the initial point $x_0$ to the final $x_*$, $x_*$ unknown in advance

Let's say there is an ODE: $\dot{x}=f(t,x)+u$ Condition: variable $x$ passes from initial state $x_0$ to final state $x_*$, that do not know in advance. Is it possible to make a transient in such a ...

### why do we need state feedback in H-infinity concept instead of output feedback

I have faced control of a flexible manipulator which have a zero dynamic related to flexible parts dynamic. the zero dynamic states (generalized states) are not observable in input-output dynamic and ...

### Optimal control of the gradient type PDE

I recently encountered the following optimal control problem. The purpose of the system is to find the parameter $x$ at which the maximum or minimum of the function $f$ a is reached. $x$ is unknown to ...

### Low accuracy current feedback measurement in motor control

Given a very low accuracy current sensor in a 3 phase inverter (in my case used for motor control) what is the best way to tackle the issue and keep reasonable performance and robustness at the same ...
