Until this is finalized the website will have the old syntax. We expect to be finished with this by February 2020. We apologize for the inconvenience. In the meantime the code on the website is runnable and can be downloaded, and should still provide a glimpse of what the new version will be able to achieve. " %}

Yop is a MATLAB Toolbox for numerical optimal control. It utilizes CasADi to interface to integrators and nonlinear optimization solvers, and thereof its name, Yop - Yet Another Optimal Control Problem Parser.

Getting started

To get started with Yop you first need to install Yop and CasADi{:target="_blank"}.

<a target="_self" class="noCrossRef" href="{{ "install"}}"> Download Yop

To get a more in-depth view of Yop you can visit the getting started page. Or you can try out any of the examples.

A Yop example - Goddard rocket problem

The Goddard rocket problem is an optimal control problem where the goal is to maximize the altitude of a vertically launched rocket, using thrust as control. The example is found on the Goddard rocket page. An illustration of the solution is found below. The problem formulation and Yop implementation are also found below.

Problem formulation

The problem formulation is the following:

$$\max : h(t_{f}) $$

$$\text{s.t} ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,$$

$$\dot{v}(t) = \frac{T(t)-D(h(t),v(t))}{m(t)}-g(h(t))$$

$$\dot{h}(t) = v(t)$$

$$\dot{m}(t) = - \frac{T(t)}{c}$$

$$D(h(t),v(t)) = D_0 e^{ -\beta \Big( \frac{h(t)-h(0)}{h(0)} \Big)} v^2(t) $$

$$g(h) = g_0\Big(\frac{h(0)}{h(t)} \Big)^2$$

$$g_0 = 1, D_0 = 0.5*620, c = 0.5, \beta = 500$$

$$v(0) = 0$$

$$h(0) = 1$$

$$m(0) = 1$$

$$0.6 \leq m(t) \leq 1$$

$$0 \leq T(t) \leq 3.5$$

The states are the rocket velocity $$v(t)$$, the altitude from the center of the earth $$h(t)$$ and mass of the rocket $$m(t)$$. The rocket burns fuel and expels it out the nozzle creating thrust, in the model thrust $$T(t)$$ is the control and the ratio between thrust and change in mass is $$\dot{m}(t) = -\frac{T(t)}{c}$$.

Another Yop example - Bryson-Denham problem

The Bryson-Denham problem is a classical minimum energy optimal control problem. This problem can be found on the Bryson-Denham page. An illustration of the problem can be found below. The problem formulation and Yop implementation can also be found below.

{% include image.html file="example_images/bryson/testAnimatedBryson2.gif" alt="BrysonAnimation" caption="Bryson-Denham Problem Visualization" %}

Problem formulation

The formulation is the following:

$$\min_{a(t)} \frac{1}{2} \int_0^1 a(t)^2 dt$$

$$\dot{v}(t) = a(t) = u(t)$$

$$\dot{x}(t) = v(t)$$

$$v(0)=-v(1)=1$$

$$x(0)=x(1)=0$$

$$x(t) \leq l = \frac{1}{9}$$

where $$u$$ is the control signal.
