FOMCON toolbox for MATLAB R2010a+

Installation Instructions


The following MATLAB toolboxes are required for FOMCON to work:

  • Control System toolbox;
  • Optimization toolbox. However, even if the Optimization toolbox is not available in the MATLAB installation, it is still possible to use certain toolbox features.


The installation currently comprises the following steps:

  • Decompress the zipped folder into a directory of your choice, e.g. *C:\fomcon*
  • Setup the directory in your MATLAB path. In the MATLAB, go to File > Set Path... and click on Add with Subfolders.... Now, select the directory that contains the fomcon folder.
  • Save the path for future MATLAB sessions (usually administrator priveleges are necessary). This completes the installation.
