# Optimal control

## Overview

The optimization techniques can be used in different ways depending on the approach (algebraic or geometric), the interest (single or multiple), the nature of the signals (deterministic or stochastic), and the stage (single or multiple). The main objective of optimal control is to determine control signals that will cause a process (plant) to satisfy some physical constraints and at the same time extremize (maximize or minimize) a chosen performance criterion (performance index or cost function).
INTENDED AUDIENCE : It is an Elective Course forPG, Research Engineers, Scientists, Non Ph.D Faculties.
PRE-REQUISITES : Advanced Control System.INDUSTRIES SUPPORT : DRDO, ISRO and Engineering Institutions etc.
