The control over high-power laser beam based on the aperture sounding algorithm and its modification is considered in this paper using methods of numerical experiment. A domain of the problem parameters is shown to exist for which local extrema appear in the space of control coordinates. A decrease in the efficiency of correction for the beam thermal blooming due to these local extrema is estimated. The method for seeking the global (basic) maximum is proposed.
