JModelica.org tutorial at the Modelica Conference 2009

A JModelica.org tutorial will be given on Sunday September 20th at the Modelica Conference 2009, held in Como, Italy. The tutorial will introduce the JModelica.org platform as well as provide an overview of how to solve hands on optimization problems. Strengths and limitations of current optimization algorithms will be highlighted and illustrated by examples. For more information, see the conference home page.

1.0-Alpha1 released

Today, JModelica.org 1.0-Alpha1 was released. The last months have been very exciting and we have made great progress with the development of the platform. All parts of the tool chain is now up and running, including code generation from Modelica/Optimica to C and XML, a simultaneous dynamic optimization algorithm, and a Python integration. Also, the upcoming Eclipse plugin is coming along very well. 
 

Optimica in the pendulum lab

PhD student Pontus Giselsson at Department of Automatic Control, Lund University, has used Optimica to develop a time-optimal control scheme for an inverted pendulum The optimal control profiles were applied to a pendulum process in the lab - the YouTube video shows the result.
