Optimal Control Method of Fluid System

  Receding horizon control, also known as model predictive control, is a kind of optimal feedback control, in which the control performance over a finite future is optimized, and its performance index has a moving initial time and a moving terminal time. The control of fluid dynamics is a challenging problem that arises in aeronautical, biological, chemical, and environmental fields. The objective of this study is to provide a novel framework of designing a receding horizon controller for fluid systems. The method proposed here is advantageous for its applicability to a wide class of optimization problem of fluid systems.
