Abstract:

Formulae for the differential, with respect to plant parameters of an optimized performance index performance sensitivity, are extended to include hard instantaneous as well as soft isoperimetric constraints on the control. In particular, this extends to discontinuous and bang-bang controls the Pagurek-Witsenhausen result on the equality of such differentials for open-loop and closed-loop optimal systems. Author
