This approach is applicable to deterministic and stochastic dynamical systems. It can be used for computing eigenvalues, eigenfunctions, and modes of the generator and for system identification. In addition to learning the governing equations of deterministic systems, which then reduces to SINDy (sparse identification of nonlinear dynamics), it is possible to identify the drift and diffusion terms of stochastic differential equations from data. Moreover, we apply gEDMD to derive coarse-grained models of high-dimensional systems, and also to determine efficient model predictive control strategies. We highlight relationships with other methods and demonstrate the efficacy of the proposed methods using several guiding examples and prototypical molecular dynamics problems.},

abstract = {The control of complex systems is of critical importance in many branches of science, engineering, and industry, many of which are governed by nonlinear partial differential equations. Controlling an unsteady fluid flow is particularly important, as flow control is a key enabler for technologies in energy (e.g., wind, tidal, and combustion), transportation (e.g., planes, trains, and automobiles), security (e.g., tracking airborne contamination), and health (e.g., artificial hearts and artificial respiration). However, the high-dimensional, nonlinear, and multi-scale dynamics make real-time feedback control infeasible. Fortunately, these high- dimensional systems exhibit dominant, low-dimensional patterns of activity that can be exploited for effective control in the sense that knowledge of the entire state of a system is not required. Advances in machine learning have the potential to revolutionize flow control given its ability to extract principled, low-rank feature spaces characterizing such complex systems.We present a novel deep learning modelpredictive control framework that exploits low-rank features of the flow in order to achieve considerable improvements to control performance. Instead of predicting the entire fluid state, we use a recurrent neural network (RNN) to accurately predict the control relevant quantities of the system, which are then embedded into an MPC framework to construct a feedback loop. In order to lower the data requirements and to improve the prediction accuracy and thus the control performance, incoming sensor data are used to update the RNN online. The results are validated using varying fluid flow examples of increasing complexity.},

abstract = {In the development of model predictive controllers for PDE-constrained problems, the use of reduced order models is essential to enable real-time applicability. Besides local linearization approaches, proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) has been most widely used in the past in order to derive such models. Due to the huge advances concerning both theory as well as the numerical approximation, a very promising alternative based on the Koopman operator has recently emerged. In this chapter, we present two control strategies for model predictive control of nonlinear PDEs using data-efficient approximations of the Koopman operator. In the first one, the dynamic control system is replaced by a small number of autonomous systems with different yet constant inputs. The control problem is consequently transformed into a switching problem. In the second approach, a bilinear surrogate model is obtained via a convex combination of these autonomous systems. Using a recent convergence result for extended dynamic mode decomposition (EDMD), convergence of the reduced objective function can be shown. We study the properties of these two strategies with respect to solution quality, data requirements, and complexity of the resulting optimization problem using the 1-dimensional Burgers equation and the 2-dimensional Navier–Stokes equations as examples. Finally, an extension for online adaptivity is presented.},

abstract = {In recent years, the success of the Koopman operator in dynamical systems
analysis has also fueled the development of Koopman operator-based control
frameworks. In order to preserve the relatively low data requirements for an
approximation via Dynamic Mode Decomposition, a quantization approach was
recently proposed in [Peitz & Klus, Automatica 106, 2019]. This way, control
of nonlinear dynamical systems can be realized by means of switched systems
techniques, using only a finite set of autonomous Koopman operator-based
reduced models. These individual systems can be approximated very efficiently
from data. The main idea is to transform a control system into a set of
autonomous systems for which the optimal switching sequence has to be computed.
In this article, we extend these results to continuous control inputs using
relaxation. This way, we combine the advantages of the data efficiency of
approximating a finite set of autonomous systems with continuous controls. We
show that when using the Koopman generator, this relaxation --- realized by
linear interpolation between two operators --- does not introduce any error for
control affine systems. This allows us to control high-dimensional nonlinear
systems using bilinear, low-dimensional surrogate models. The efficiency of the
proposed approach is demonstrated using several examples with increasing
complexity, from the Duffing oscillator to the chaotic fluidic pinball.},

abstract = {Multi-objective optimization is an active field of research that has many applications. Owing to its success and because decision-making processes are becoming more and more complex, there is a recent trend for incorporating many objectives into such problems. The challenge with such problems, however, is that the dimensions of the solution sets—the so-called Pareto sets and fronts—grow with the number of objectives. It is thus no longer possible to compute or to approximate the entire solution set of a given problem that contains many (e.g. more than three) objectives. On the other hand, the computation of single solutions (e.g. via scalarization methods) leads to unsatisfying results in many cases, even if user preferences are incorporated. In this article, the Pareto Explorer tool is presented—a global/local exploration tool for the treatment of many-objective optimization problems (MaOPs). In the first step, a solution of the problem is computed via a global search algorithm that ideally already includes user preferences. In the second step, a local search along the Pareto set/front of the given MaOP is performed in user specified directions. For this, several continuation-like procedures are proposed that can incorporate preferences defined in decision, objective, or in weight space. The applicability and usefulness of Pareto Explorer is demonstrated on benchmark problems as well as on an application from industrial laundry design.},

abstract = {In real-world problems, uncertainties (e.g., errors in the measurement,
precision errors) often lead to poor performance of numerical algorithms when
not explicitly taken into account. This is also the case for control problems,
where optimal solutions can degrade in quality or even become infeasible. Thus,
there is the need to design methods that can handle uncertainty. In this work,
we consider nonlinear multi-objective optimal control problems with uncertainty
on the initial conditions, and in particular their incorporation into a
feedback loop via model predictive control (MPC). In multi-objective optimal
control, an optimal compromise between multiple conflicting criteria has to be
found. For such problems, not much has been reported in terms of uncertainties.
To address this problem class, we design an offline/online framework to compute
an approximation of efficient control strategies. This approach is closely
related to explicit MPC for nonlinear systems, where the potentially expensive
optimization problem is solved in an offline phase in order to enable fast
solutions in the online phase. In order to reduce the numerical cost of the
offline phase, we exploit symmetries in the control problems. Furthermore, in
order to ensure optimality of the solutions, we include an additional online
optimization step, which is considerably cheaper than the original
multi-objective optimization problem. We test our framework on a car
maneuvering problem where safety and speed are the objectives. The
multi-objective framework allows for online adaptations of the desired
objective. Alternatively, an automatic scalarizing procedure yields very
efficient feedback controls. Our results show that the method is capable of
designing driving strategies that deal better with uncertainties in the initial
conditions, which translates into potentially safer and faster driving
strategies.},

decision was based, in particular if several, potentially conflicting criteria

optimization, where the goal is to find the objective vector of a given Pareto

multiobjective optimization problem (MOP) such that the Pareto critical set

consider the objective vector in the multiobjective KKT conditions as variable

resulting system of equations. By expressing the objectives in a
finite-dimensional basis, we transform this problem into a homogeneous, linear
system of equations that can be solved efficiently. There are many important
potential applications of this approach. Besides the identification of
objectives (both from clean and noisy data), the method can be used for the
construction of surrogate models for expensive MOPs, which yields significant
speed-ups. Both applications are illustrated using several examples.},

applications, where several objectives are often of equal importance. The task
in multiobjective optimization and multiobjective optimal control is therefore
to compute the set of optimal compromises (the Pareto set) between the
conflicting objectives. Since the Pareto set generally consists of an infinite
number of solutions, the computational effort can quickly become challenging
which is particularly problematic when the objectives are costly to evaluate as
is the case for models governed by partial differential equations (PDEs). To
decrease the numerical effort to an affordable amount, surrogate models can be
used to replace the expensive PDE evaluations. Existing multiobjective
optimization methods using model reduction are limited either to low parameter
dimensions or to few (ideally two) objectives. In this article, we present a
combination of the reduced basis model reduction method with a continuation
approach using inexact gradients. The resulting approach can handle an

abstract = {In comparison to classical control approaches in the field of electrical drives like the field-oriented control (FOC), model predictive control (MPC) approaches are able to provide a higher control performance. This refers to shorter settling times, lower overshoots, and a better decoupling of control variables in case of multi-variable controls. However, this can only be achieved if the used prediction model covers the actual behavior of the plant sufficiently well. In case of model deviations, the performance utilizing MPC remains below its potential. This results in effects like increased current ripple or steady state setpoint deviations. In order to achieve a high control performance, it is therefore necessary to adapt the model to the real plant behavior. When using an online system identification, a less accurate model is sufficient for commissioning of the drive system. In this paper, the combination of a finite-control-set MPC (FCS-MPC) with a system identification is proposed. The method does not require high-frequency signal injection, but uses the measured values already required for the FCS-MPC. An evaluation of the least squares-based identification on a laboratory test bench showed that the model accuracy and thus the control performance could be improved by an online update of the prediction models.},

abstract = {In a wide range of applications it is desirable to optimally control a dynamical system with respect to concurrent, potentially competing goals. This gives rise to a multiobjective optimal control problem where, instead of computing a single optimal solution, the set of optimal compromises, the so-called Pareto set, has to be approximated. When the problem under consideration is described by a partial differential equation (PDE), as is the case for fluid flow, the computational cost rapidly increases and makes its direct treatment infeasible. Reduced order modeling is a very popular method to reduce the computational cost, in particular in a multi query context such as uncertainty quantification, parameter estimation or optimization. In this article, we show how to combine reduced order modeling and multiobjective optimal control techniques in order to efficiently solve multiobjective optimal control problems constrained by PDEs. We consider a global, derivative free optimization method as well as a local, gradient-based approach for which the optimality system is derived in two different ways. The methods are compared with regard to the solution quality as well as the computational effort and they are illustrated using the example of the flow around a cylinder and a backward-facing-step channel flow.},

A numerical approximation of the Koopman operator therefore yields a linear system for the observation of an autonomous dynamical system. In our approach, by introducing a finite number of constant controls, the dynamic control system is transformed into a set of autonomous systems and the corresponding optimal control problem into a switching time optimization problem. This allows us to replace each of these systems by a K-ROM which can be solved orders of magnitude faster. By this approach, a nonlinear infinite-dimensional control problem is transformed into a low-dimensional linear problem. Using a recent convergence result for the numerical approximation via Extended Dynamic Mode Decomposition (EDMD), we show that the value of the K-ROM based objective function converges in measure to the value of the full objective function. To illustrate the results, we consider the 1D Burgers equation and the 2D Navier–Stokes equations. The numerical experiments show remarkable performance concerning both solution times and accuracy.},
