Optimal multiplexing of sparse controllers for linear systems

Yogesh Kumar, Sukumar Srikant, Debasish Chatterjee

This article treats three problems of sparse and optimal multiplexing a finite ensemble of linear control systems. Given an ensemble of linear control systems, multiplexing of the controllers consists of an algorithm that selects, at each time \(t\), only one from the ensemble of linear systems is actively controlled whereas the other systems evolve in open-loop. The first problem treated here is a ballistic reachability problem where the control signals are required to be maximally sparse and multiplexed, the second concerns sparse and optimally multiplexed linear quadratic control, and the third is a sparse and optimally multiplexed Mayer problem. Numerical experiments are provided to demonstrate the efficacy of the techniques developed here.
