Sensitivity analysis approach for reduced-order approximations of optimal control problems governed by Burgers equation

Akman, Tuğba
The reduced-order model of the optimal control problem governed by Burgers equation is derived using the proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) method. The reduced-order solution depending on parameters, which are different from the nominal values, may not be accurate if the POD basis functions depending on the nominal values are used to derive the reduced-order model. It is known that Burgers equation is sensitive to the perturbations in the diffusion term, so we use the sensitivity information to improve the robustness of the POD solution by generating two new bases: extrapolated and expanded POD basis. We compare these different bases in terms of accuracy, robustness, and computational time. Copyright (c) 2015 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.


Error estimates for space-time discontinuous Galerkin formulation based on proper orthogonal decomposition
Akman, Tuğba (Informa UK Limited, 2017-01-01)
In this study, proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) method is applied to diffusion-convection-reaction equation, which is discretized using spacetime discontinuous Galerkin (dG) method. We provide estimates for POD truncation error in dG-energy norm, dG-elliptic projection, and spacetime projection. Using these new estimates, we analyze the error between the dG and the POD solution, and the error between the exact and the POD solution. Numerical results, which are consistent with theoretical convergence ra...

Supervisory control problems are formulated in terms of a process model where the mechanism of control is expressed in terms of an algebraic operator with the plant and supervision processes as its arguments. The solution subspaces for supervisory processes restrict the observation and the control capability of supervision. The main result corresponds to decentralized marked supervision under partial observations, and specific cases are derived from this result in a unified, algebraic way. The result and it...
Dynamic programming for a Markov-switching jump-diffusion
Azevedo, N.; Pinheiro, D.; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm (Elsevier BV, 2014-09-01)
We consider an optimal control problem with a deterministic finite horizon and state variable dynamics given by a Markov-switching jump-diffusion stochastic differential equation. Our main results extend the dynamic programming technique to this larger family of stochastic optimal control problems. More specifically, we provide a detailed proof of Bellman's optimality principle (or dynamic programming principle) and obtain the corresponding Hamilton-Jacobi-Belman equation, which turns out to be a partial in...
Least-squares differential quadrature time integration scheme in the dual reciprocity boundary element method solution of diffusive-convective problems
Bozkaya, Canan (Elsevier BV, 2007-01-01)
Least-squares differential quadrature method (DQM) is used for solving the ordinary differential equations in time, obtained from the application of dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM) for the spatial partial derivatives in diffusive-convective type problems with variable coefficients. The DRBEM enables us to use the fundamental solution of Laplace equation, which is easy to implement computation ally. The terms except the Laplacian are considered as the nonhomogeneity in the equation, which ar...

ÖZBEKLER, ABDULLAH; Wong, J. S. W.; Zafer, Ağacık (Elsevier BV, 2011-07-01)
In this paper we give new oscillation criteria for forced super- and sub-linear differential equations by means of nonprincipal solutions.
