Title: On Problems of Dynamic Optimal Nodal Control for Gas Networks

Speaker: Prof. Dr. Martin Gugat
Affiliation: FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg (Germany)

Abstract. We consider optimal control problems for gas pipeline systems. The flow is governed by a quasilinear hyperbolic model. Since in the operation of the gas networks regular solutions without shocks are desirable, we impose appropriate state and control constraint in order to guarantee that a classical solution is generated. Due to a W^{2,\infty}-regularization term in the objective function, we can show the existence of an optimal control. Moreover, we give conditions that guarantee that the control becomes constant a the end of the control time interval if the weight of the regularization term is sufficiently large.
