Abstract:

An initial investigation of the use of the fixed plus variable computer to solve a class of control system optimization problems is reported. In particular, two modes of operations are recognized and the loosely coupled mode is discussed in some detail in an attempt to define functions that the supervisory control must perform and the inventory of the variable structure needed for the problem considered. During the course of this initial study some effective rejection criteria have been evolved which may considerably reduce the amount of interpolation required. Author
