In this paper, we aim to solve the infinite-time optimal tracking control problem for a class of discrete-time nonlinear systems using the greedy heuristic dynamic programming (HDP) iteration algorithm. A new type of performance index is defined because the existing performance indexes are very difficult in solving this kind of tracking problem, if not impossible. Via system transformation, the optimal tracking problem is transformed into an optimal regulation problem, and then, the greedy HDP iteration algorithm is introduced to deal with the regulation problem with rigorous convergence analysis. Three neural networks are used to approximate the performance index, compute the optimal control policy, and model the nonlinear system for facilitating the implementation of the greedy HDP iteration algorithm. An example is given to demonstrate the validity of the proposed optimal tracking control scheme.
