1. For a given control policy solve for the cost:

2. Improve policy:

- If started with a stabilizing control policy the matrix monotonically converges to the unique positive definite solution of the Riccati equation.
- Every iteration step will return a stabilizing controller.
- The system has to be known.

Policy Iterations without Lyapunov Equations

- An alternative to using policy iterations with Lyapunov equations is the following form of policy iterations:
- Note that in this case, to solve for the Lyapunov function, you do not need to know the information about f(x).

CT HDP results

The state measurements were taken at each 0.1s time period.

A cost function update was performed at each 1.5s.

For the 60s duration of the simulation a number of 40 iterations (control policy updates) were performed.

Convergence of the P matrix parameters for CT HDP

The discrete version was obtained by discretizing the continuous time model using zero-order hold method with the sample time T=0.01s.

Continuous-time used only 40 iterations!

DT ADHDP resultsThe state measurements were taken at each 0.01s time period.

A cost function update was performed at each .15s.

For the 60s duration of the simulation a number of 400 iterations (control policy updates) were performed.

Convergence of the P matrix parameters for DT ADHDP

- CT HDP
- Partially model free (the system A matrix is not required to be known)
- DT ADHDP – Q learning
- Completely model free

The DT ADHP algorithm is computationally more intensive than the CT HDP since it is using a smaller sampling period
