An Improved Algorithm for Solving Constrained Optimal Control Problems
Motivated by the need to have an algorithm which (1) can solve generally constrained optimal control problems, (2) is globally convergent, (3) has a fast local convergence rate, a new algorithm, which solves fixed end-time ...
Techniques for Designing Rotorcraft Control Systems, Final Report
Over the last two and a half years we have been demonstrating a new methodology for the design of rotorcraft flight control systems (FCS) to meet handling qualities requirements. This method is based on multicriterion ...
Motion Control of Drift-Free, Left-Invariant Systems on Lie Groups
In this paper we address the constructive controllability problem for drift free, left-invariant systems on finite-dimensional Lie groups with fewer controls than state dimension. We consider small (e) amplitude, low-frequency, ...
Motion Control of Drift-Free, Left-Invariant Systems on Lie Groups, Part II: A General Constructive Control Algorithm
In this paper we present a general algorithm for constructing open-loop controls to solve the complete constructive controllability problem for drift-free invariant systems on Lie groups that satisfy the Lie algebra ...
