The synthesis of a suboptimal feedback control law for second-order nonlinear systems with a quadratic performance index is considered. The synthesis methods developed for this problem generally consist of different ways for determining the coefficients of a power series which approximates the optimal control laws. A method using piecewise-linear functions is described.
