We study the local exponential stabilization of the 2D and 3D Navier-Stokes equations in a bounded domain, around a given steady-state flow, by means of a boundary control. We look for a control so that the solution to the Navier-Stokes equations be a strong solution. In the 3D case, such solutions may exist if the Dirichlet control satisfies a compatibility condition with the initial condition. In order to determine a feedback law satisfying such a compatibility condition, we consider an extended system coupling the Navier-Stokes equations with an equation satisfied by the control on the boundary of the domain. We determine a linear feedback law by solving a linear quadratic control problem for the linearized extended system. We show that this feedback law also stabilizes the nonlinear extended system.
