Autumn School on Model Reduction and Model Predictive Control with Differential Equations

4. October 2022 / 7:45 - 7. October 2022 / 16:00

The Research Training Group on Algorithmic Optimization proudly announces its seventh annual
Autumn School from October 4 – 7, 2022.

This year’s focus will be on Model Reduction and Model Predictive Control with Differential Equations

Optimal control problems have numerous applications in engineering and industry. One strategy for approaching them is model predictive control, which is based on solving a series of online problems over small time periods. A major advantage of this approach is that constraints can be easily incorporated. However, the computational complexity can become very high for certain real-time problems, for example, when the underlying dynamical system is a discretized partial differential equation. In such cases, model order reduction becomes necessary to reduce the computational costs. The idea is to construct a low-dimensional surrogate model -typically in an offline phase- to replace the overly computationally expensive system underlying the optimization problem in the online phase.


The ALOP Autumn School will feature introductory lectures on model order reduction, model predictive control, and related topics, especially from the systems and control perspective

Confirmed speakers:

Tobias Breiten (TU Berlin)

Tobias Damm (TU Kaiserslautern)

Jan Heiland (OVGU Magdeburg, Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems)

Benjamin Unger (University Stuttgart, Independent Junior Research Group Leader for Dynamic Systems)


Nicole Marheineke (Trier University)

Björn Liljegren-Sailer (Trier University)
