We use mathematics to control real-world systems better

The research focus of the laboratory is on optimization and control with a current application focus on mechatronic and renewable energy systems. The core area of expertise are embedded optimization algorithms, i.e. methods for real-time optimization on embedded platforms, with a focus on nonlinear systems. The work of the group spans from dynamic system modelling and optimal control problem formulations. The group’s interdisciplinary work is located between numerical mathematics, computer science, and control engineering.
