Numerical Methods for Embedded Optimization and Optimal Control
|Date:||2011-06-15 - 2011-06-16|
|Place:||Linköping, Campus Valla, B-building, Visionen|
Lecturer: Moritz Diehl
Electrical Engineering Department (ESAT-SCD) and Optimization in Engineering Center (OPTEC), K.U. Leuven, Belgium
This two day lecture course will present a personal overview on numerical methods for optimal control of nonlinear dynamic systems and present some recent advances in the field with a particular view on model predictive control and embedded optimization. It also introduces some recently developed software packages, qpOASES, ACADO, and CasADi. The course is based on joint work with Boris Houska, Hans Joachim Ferreau, Joel Andersson, and Jan Albersmeyer.
The slides for all the talks are now available.

ExercisesTo complement the lecture script there is a PDF-document that contains the exercises for the summer course. Note that the exercises are very descriptive which results in a long document. The following tools are used
- Paper and pen
- ACADO is used in the last exercise. Instructions for getting the template file and access to the central installation are given on a separate page.
Course CreditsThere will be two basic options for the course credits, they are
- 0 hp, for participation in the summer course.
- 2 hp, if hand-in assignments are completed.
