An interior point trust region method for computing optimal feedback controllers

Friedemann Leibfritz, University of Trier

We consider the problem of designing feedback control laws when a complete set of state variables is not available. The resulting nonlinear and nonconvex matrix optimization problem including SDP-constraints for determining the optimal feedback gain will be solved by an interior point trust region approach. The algorithm will be discussed in some details. Finally, using test examples from optimal output feedback design we also demonstrate the usefulness of this approach numerically.
