Switched systems operate by switching among various modes or subsystems. This talk considers optimal control problems governed by nonlinear switched systems in which the mode dynamics are described by nonlinear differential equations. A computational method for computing the optimal control for this optimal control problem is to be presented. This computational method is based on some key ideas in optimal control computation, which include control parameterization, time-scaling transformation, and the constraint transcription method. Several examples are discussed.
