Control problems for convection-diffusion equations with control localized on manifolds

Phuong Anh NguyenJean-Pierre Raymond — 2001

ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations

We consider optimal control problems for convection-diffusion equations with a pointwise control or a control localized on a smooth manifold. We prove optimality conditions for the control variable and for the position of the control. We do not suppose that the coefficient of the convection term is regular or bounded, we only suppose that it has the regularity of strong solutions of the Navier–Stokes equations. We consider functionals with an observation on the gradient of the state. To obtain optimality...

Feedback stabilization of a boundary layer equation

Jean-Marie BuchotJean-Pierre Raymond — 2011

ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations

We are interested in the feedback stabilization of a fluid flow over a flat plate, around a stationary solution, in the presence of perturbations. More precisely, we want to stabilize the laminar-to-turbulent transition location of a fluid flow over a flat plate. For that we study the Algebraic Riccati Equation (A.R.E.) of a control problem in which the state equation is a doubly degenerate linear parabolic equation. Because of the degenerate character of the state equation, the classical existence...

Exact controllability in fluid–solid structure : the Helmholtz model

Jean-Pierre RaymondMuthusamy Vanninathan — 2005

ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations

A model representing the vibrations of a fluid-solid coupled structure is considered. Following Hilbert Uniqueness Method (HUM) introduced by Lions, we establish exact controllability results for this model with an internal control in the fluid part and there is no control in the solid part. Novel features which arise because of the coupling are pointed out. It is a source of difficulty in the proof of observability inequalities, definition of weak solutions and the proof of controllability results....

Hamilton-Jacobi equations for control problems of parabolic equations

Sophie GombaoJean-Pierre Raymond — 2006

ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations

We study Hamilton-Jacobi equations related to the boundary (or internal) control of semilinear parabolic equations, including the case of a control acting in a nonlinear boundary condition, or the case of a nonlinearity of Burgers' type in 2D. To deal with a control acting in a boundary condition a fractional power ( - A ) β – where is an unbounded operator in a Hilbert space – is contained in the Hamiltonian functional appearing in the Hamilton-Jacobi equation. This situation has already been studied...

Penalization of Dirichlet optimal control problems

Eduardo CasasMariano MateosJean-Pierre Raymond — 2009

ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations

We apply Robin penalization to Dirichlet optimal control problems governed by semilinear elliptic equations. Error estimates in terms of the penalization parameter are stated. The results are compared with some previous ones in the literature and are checked by a numerical experiment. A detailed study of the regularity of the solutions of the PDEs is carried out.

Nonlinear feedback stabilization of a two-dimensional Burgers equation

Laetitia ThevenetJean-Marie BuchotJean-Pierre Raymond — 2010

ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations

In this paper, we study the stabilization of a two-dimensional Burgers equation around a stationary solution by a nonlinear feedback boundary control. We are interested in Dirichlet and Neumann boundary controls. In the literature, it has already been shown that a linear control law, determined by stabilizing the linearized equation, locally stabilizes the two-dimensional Burgers equation. In this paper, we define a nonlinear control law which also provides a local exponential stabilization of...
