Abstract: This paper describes a Matlab package for dynamic optimisation of processes called dynopt. The package dynopt searches for profiles of decision variables which optimise a given performance index under specified constraints. The method of orthogonal collocations on finite elements implemented within dynopt allows us to tackle problems described by ordinary differential equations (ODE's) and by differential-algebraic equations (DAE's) as well. Several case studies are successfully tested.
