Title: Extremum-seeking control of nonlinear, state-constrained systems (½ hour)
Abstract: We pose and solve a type of extremum seeking control problem for a class of convex state-constrained nonlinear systems with unknown parameters. The controller is derived to drive the system states to the (unknown) "set-points" which maximize the value of an objective function depending upon unknown parameters. Feasibility of the trajectory and its limit point are ensuring using an interior-point approach.
