On a Solution of a Guarantee Optimization Problem Under the Functional Constraints on the Disturbance

The paper deals with a control problem for a dynamical system under disturbances. A motion of the system is considered on a finite interval of time and described by a nonlinear ordinary differential equation. The control is aimed at minimization of a given quality index. In addition to geometric constraints on the control and disturbance, it is supposed that the disturbance satisfies a compact functional constraint. Namely, all disturbance realizations that can happen in the system belong to some unknown set that is compact in the space \(L_1\). Within the game-theoretical approach, the problem of optimizing the guaranteed result of the control is studied. For solving this problem, we propose a new construction of the optimal control strategy. In the linear-convex case, this strategy can be numerically realized on the basis of the upper convex hulls method. Examples are considered. Results of numerical simulations are given.
