Abstract

In the previous chapter we showed that for each given sequence of control settings, fuel consumption is minimised if the settings are changed only when the speed reaches a critical value. The duration of each phase is determined by these critical speeds. A strategy in which the control setting is changed at each of the corresponding switching times is called a strategy of optimal type. Critical speeds were discussed in the previous chapter, and it was shown how these speeds could be adjusted to produce a feasible strategy.
