do-mpc is a comprehensive open-source toolbox for robust model predictive control (MPC) and moving horizon estimation (MHE)do-mpc enables the efficient formulation and solution of control and estimation problems for nonlinear systems, including tools to deal with uncertainty and time discretization. The modular structure of do-mpc contains simulation, estimation and control components that can be easily extended and combined to fit many different applications.

In summary, do-mpc offers the following features:

  • nonlinear and economic model predictive control
  • support for differential algebraic equations (DAE)
  • time discretization with orthogonal collocation on finite elements
  • robust multi-stage model predictive control
  • moving horizon state and parameter estimation
  • modular design that can be easily extended

The do-mpc software is Python based and works therefore on any OS with a Python 3.x distribution. do-mpc has been developed by Sergio Lucia and Alexandru Tatulea at the DYN chair of the TU Dortmund lead by Sebastian Engell. The development is continued at the Laboratory of Process Automation Systems at TU Dortmund by Sergio Lucia and Felix Fiedler.

We are proudly presenting an extensive documentation of the toolbox on our project website
