Abstract
In this paper we consider the problem of computing feedback functional gains for control problem governed by the Boussinesq equations. These gains and the corresponding feedback laws provide insight into determining good spatial location of sensors for optimal operation of energy efficient buildings. Theoretical and numerical results are presented to illustrate the ideas and to suggest areas for future research.
