Automatic Control of the Temperature in Phase Change Problems with MemoryS. Gatti (1) Università di Ferrara, Italy
We study a parabolic two-phase system with memory occupying a bounded and smooth domain. The heat exchange at part of the boundary is controlled by a thermostat. Assuming on the phase variable either a relaxation dynamics or a Stefan condition, we prove existence and uniqueness results for feedback control problems corresponding to two different types of thermostat: the relay switch and the Preisach operator. These results are strictly related to the continuous dependence of the solution on the boundary datum, which is investigated in advance.
