Padhi, Radhakant and Balakrishnan, SN (2005) Optimal Control of a Class of One-Dimensional Nonlinear Distributed Parameter Systems with Discrete Actuators. In: Proceedings of the 2005 American Control Conference, 2005, 8-10 June, Portland,OR,USA, Vol.6, 3900 -3905.
Combining the principles of dynamic inversion and optimization theory, a new approach is presented for stable control of a class of one-dimensional nonlinear distributed parameter systems with a finite number of actuators in the spatial domain. Unlike the existing 'approximate-then-design' and 'design-then-approximate' techniques, this approach does not use any approximation either of the system dynamics or of the resulting controller. The formulation has more practical significance because one can implement a set of discrete controllers with relative ease. To demonstrate the potential of the proposed technique, a real-life temperature control problem for a heat transfer application is solved through simulations. Numerical results are presented which show that the desired temperature profile can be achieved starting from any initial temperature profile.
