Analysis of an optimal control problem connected to bioprocesses involving a saturated singular arc

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We study a minimal time control problem under the presence of a saturation point on the singular locus. The system describes a fed-batch reactor with one species and one substrate. Our aim is to find an optimal feedback control steering the system to a given target in minimal time. The growth function is of Haldane type implying the existence of a singular arc which is non-necessary admissible everywhere (i.e. the singular control can take values outside the admissible control set). Thanks to Pontrygin's Principle, we provide an optimal synthesis of the problem that exhibits a frame point at the intersection of the singular arc and a switching curve. Numerical simulations allow to compute this curve and the frame point.
