This article proposes a new and efficient iterative procedure to solve a class of discrete-time nonlinear optimal control problems. Based on the Pontryagin's maximum principle, the necessary optimality conditions are formulated in the form of a nonlinear discrete boundary value problem (BVP). This problem is then reduced into a sequence of linear discrete BVPs by applying a series expansion approach called the modal series method. Solving the aforementioned sequence by using the techniques ofdoi:10.18280/jesa.520312 fatcat:ctqhigmucndexbr3drohsf4qye
