• In this paper, we present a feedback design for numerical solution to optimal control problems, which is based on solving the corresponding Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman (HJB) equation. An upwind finite-difference scheme is adopted to solve the HJB equation under the framework of the dynamic programming viscosity solution (DPVS) approach. Different from the usual existing algorithms, the numerical control function is interpolated in turn to gain the approximation of optimal feedback control-trajectory pair. Five simulations are executed and both of them, without exception, output the accurate numerical results. The design can avoid solving the HJB equation repeatedly, thus efficaciously promote the computation efficiency and save memory.
