Self-Learning Optimal Regulation for Discrete-Time Nonlinear Systems Under Event-Driven Formulation
The self-learning optimal regulation for discrete-time nonlinear systems under event-driven formulation is investigated. An event-based adaptive critic algorithm is developed with convergence discussion of the iterative process. The input-to-state stability (ISS) analysis for the present nonlinear plant is established. Then, a suitable triggering condition is proved to ensure the ISS of the controlled system. An iterative dual heuristic dynamic programming (DHP) strategy is adopted to implement the event-driven framework. Simulation examples are carried out to demonstrate the applicability of the constructed method. Compared with the traditional DHP algorithm, the even-based algorithm is able to substantially reduce the updating times of the control input, while still maintaining an impressive performance.
