In optimal control problems of switched systems, we
may need to find both an optimal continuous input and
an optimal switching sequence since the system dynam-
ics vary before and after every switching instant. In this
paper, optimal control problems for both continuous-
time and discrete-time switched systems are formulated
and investigated. In particular, we regard an optimal
control problem as a two stage optimization problem
and discuss its solution algorithm. The dynamic pro-
gramming (DP) approach is also studied. Difficulties
and open problems are discussed.
