Fireman Numerical Solution of Some Existing Optimal Control Problems


This study employs the Fireman Method in the solutions of optimal control problems of the form, under an admissible control , which causes to follow admissible trajectory . The Hamiltonian Principle was employed for the analytical solutions of the given optimal control problems. It has been observed that this method converges close to the analytical solution for some class of problems.
