The Research Areas


The research work of the Optimal Control Research Group is focused in three major areas: Control, Optimization and Design.


Research in Control include a development of the classical control theory, as well as the model predictive control algorithms. Especially, systems with differential-algebraic cosntraints (DAEs) are under considerations.


Research in Optimization includes theoretical and methodological advances in large-scale nonlinear programming, the optimization of the differential-algebraic systems, as well as the optimization of data-driven models.


Topics in Design involve applications in areas such as air-conditioning, indirect evaporative cooling and renewable energy.
