This paper presents a novel suboptimal attitude tracking controller based on the algebraic Riccati equation for a near-space hypersonic vehicle (NSHV). Since the NSHV’s attitude dynamics is complexly nonlinear, it is hard to directly construct an appropriate algebraic Riccati equation. We design the construction based on the Chebyshev series and the Koopman operator theory, which includes three steps. First, the Chebyshev series are considered to transform the error dynamics of the NSHV’s attitude into a polynomial system. Second, the Koopman operator is used to obtain a series of high-dimensional linear dynamics to approximate each of the polynomial system’s vector fields. In this step, our contribution is to determine a well-posed linear dynamics with the minimal dimension to approximate the original nonlinear vector field, which helps to design the control law and analyze the control performance. Third, based on the high-dimensional dynamics, the NSHV’s attitude error dynamics is separated into the linear part and the nonlinear part, such that the algebraic Riccati equation can be constructed according to the linear part. Then, the suboptimal error feedback control law is derived from the algebraic Riccati equation. The closed-loop control system is proved to be locally exponentially stable. Finally, the numerical simulation demonstrates the effectiveness of the suboptimal control law.

Although solving the robust control problem with offline manner has been studied, it is not easy to solve it using the online method, especially for uncertain systems. In this paper, a novel approach based on an online data-driven learning is suggested to address the robust control problem for uncertain systems. To this end, the robust control problem of uncertain systems is first transformed into an optimal problem of the nominal systems via selecting an appropriate value function that denotes the uncertainties, regulation, and control. Then, a data-driven learning framework is constructed, where Kronecker’s products and vectorization operations are used to reformulate the derived algebraic Riccati equation (ARE). To obtain the solution of this ARE, an adaptive learning law is designed; this helps to retain the convergence of the estimated solutions. The closed-loop system stability and convergence have been proved. Finally, simulations are given to illustrate the effectiveness of the method.

This paper presents modeling and infinite-time suboptimal control of a quadcopter device using the state-dependent Riccati equation (SDRE) method. It establishes a solution to the control problem using SDRE and proposes a new procedure for solving the problem. As a new contribution, the paper proposes a modified SDRE-based suboptimal control technique for affine nonlinear systems. The method uses a pseudolinearization of the closed-loop system employing Moore–Penrose pseudoinverse. Then, the algebraic Riccati equation (ARE), related to the feedback compensator gain, is reduced to state-independent form, and the solution can be computed only once in the whole control process. The ARE equation is applied to the problem reported in this study that provides general formulation and stability analysis. The effectiveness of the proposed control technique is demonstrated through the use of simulation results for a quadrotor device.

The paper investigates the state estimation problem of general continuous-time linear systems with the consideration of time-varying communication delay. A solution is proposed in terms of the networked distributed observer, which consists of multiple local observers. Each local observer relies on only part of the system output and exchanges information with neighbors through undirected links modeled by a prespecified communication graph. A simple approach for computing observer parameters is presented by solving a parametric algebraic Riccati equation. Furthermore, by the Lyapunov–Krasovskii stability theorem, an upper bound of the delay could be calculated explicitly and together with the conditions of joint observability and connectivity of the communication graph; the resulting distributed observers work coordinately to achieve an asymptotic estimate of the full plant state. An illustrative example is provided to confirm the analytical results.

The paper proposes a nonlinear optimal control approach for the model of the vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft. This aerial drone receives as control input a directed thrust, as well as forces acting on its wing tips. The latter forces are not perpendicular to the body axis of the drone but are tilted by a small angle. The dynamic model of the VTOL undergoes approximate linearization with the use of Taylor series expansion around a temporary operating point which is recomputed at each iteration of the control method. For the approximately linearized model, an H-infinity feedback controller is designed. The linearization procedure relies on the computation of the Jacobian matrices of the state-space model of the VTOL aircraft. The proposed control method stands for the solution of the optimal control problem for the nonlinear and multivariable dynamics of the aerial drone, under model uncertainties and external perturbations. For the computation of the controller’s feedback gains, an algebraic Riccati equation is solved at each time-step of the control method. The new nonlinear optimal control approach achieves fast and accurate tracking for all state variables of the VTOL aircraft, under moderate variations of the control inputs. The stability properties of the control scheme are proven through Lyapunov analysis.

In this paper, a new method for the design of the preview controller for a class of discrete-time systems is proposed based on the virtual system. Firstly, by taking the known future reference signal as the output, the virtual system with similar structures to the controlled system is constructed. Then, the augmented error system is received by translating the controlled system to it and by integrating the error equation. Thus, the tracking problem of the controlled system is transformed into the regulation problem of the augmented error system. Secondly, in view of the minimum principle, the optimal controller of the augmented error system is acquired, and the preview controller of the controlled system is also gained. Further, by discussing the stabilizability and detectability of the augmented error system, the conditions for the existence of the unique positive semidefinite solution to an algebraic Riccati equation are obtained. By using the method in this paper, making difference and dimension expansion for the state equation in designing the augmented error system is avoided and the output can track the reference signals better. Finally, the numerical simulation shows the effectiveness of the proposed controller.

In this paper, the optimal consensus control problem is investigated for heterogeneous linear multi-agent systems (MASs) with spanning tree condition based on game theory and reinforcement learning. First, the graphical minimax game algebraic Riccati equation (ARE) is derived by converting the consensus problem into a zero-sum game problem between each agent and its neighbors. The asymptotic stability and minimax validation of the closed-loop systems are proved theoretically. Then, a data-driven off-policy reinforcement learning algorithm is proposed to online learn the optimal control policy without the information of the system dynamics. A certain rank condition is established to guarantee the convergence of the proposed algorithm to the unique solution of the ARE. Finally, the effectiveness of the proposed method is demonstrated through a numerical simulation.
