This paper deals with a constrained LQ-type optimal control problem (OCP) in the presence of fixed levels input restrictions. We consider control processes governed by linear differential equations with a priori known control switching structure. The set of admissible inputs reflects some important natural engineering applications and moreover, can also be interpreted as a result of a quantization procedure applied to the original dynamic system. We propose a novel implementable algorithm that makes it possible to calculate a (numerically consistent) approximative solution to the constrained LQ-type OCPs under consideration. Our contribution mainly discusses theoretic aspects of the proposed solution scheme and contains an illustrative numerical example. © 2017, Forum-Editrice Universitaria Udinese SRL.
