Summary: 
It is shown that bounded impulse action can be combined with usual bang-bang control input to minimize the performance index. Especially for unstable oscillators, the size of controllable region can be increased. We present results on how to minimize the performance index using both ordinary bang-bang control and impulse actions with a recharge constraint on impulse firing. Following the maximum principle and necessary conditions induced from usual perturbation arguments, the mixed control input (bang-bang and impulse actions) is represented in adjoint state and then state variable feedback form. Simulation results show how the switch curves can be used to determine the optimal control value.
