1st Ph.D. Workshop: How to Ph.D.


Date: November 29 - 30, 2022

This workshop covers the most important challenges regarding the start of your new position as a PhD student – from getting your laptop ready to work with to ordering your first chemicals, doing literature research and setting up your experiments. We discussed who has an interest in the success of your project und how to distinguish a good from a critical publication by analyzing its structure, formatting and content. Program

2nd Ph.D. Workshop: Numerical simulation and optimal control with CasADi and acados

Datum: November 29, 2023

This workshop "Numerical simulation and optimal control with CasADi and acados" is part of the annual project meeting of the project SPP 2364: Autonome Prozesse in der Partikeltechnik. It is organized by Katrin Baumgärtner and Prof. Moritz Diehl (University of Freiburg). The aim of this workshop is to give the participants some hands on experience on methods and in particular software for numerical simulation and optimal control. The workshop exercises are based on python, CasADi, and acados.

In the first part of the workshop, we briefly recap some basics on nonlinear optimization and nonlinear programming algorithms. In the second part, we consider numerical simulation methods as well as direct optimal control. We discuss numerical algorithms and software tools for solving the nonlinear optimization problems arising from the direct optimal control approach. In the exercise session, we directly apply the introduced methods to a simple process control example. Program
