New technique for achieving an approximate solution to optimal control problems (OCPs) is considered in this paper. The algorithm is based upon B-spline polynomials (BSPs) approximation with state parameterization method. An important property concerning the B-spline functions is first presented then it is utilized to propose a modified restarted technique to reduce the number of unknown parameters with fast convergence. The method is applied through four illustrative examples and is compared with other results.
