Abstract:

An additive control of a randomly excited linear damped oscillator is studied by the methods of dynamic programming and variational inequalities. The objective is to minimize the mean deviation from the rest position over a finite horizon, with a possible resource constraint. We shall present some analytical results on the optimal average cost function and the feedback control law. Numerical solution will be discussed briefly. Author
