Optimization problem - solving problem within a loop

Asked by Muzammil Ali on 9 Jul 2019
Latest activity Commented on by Muzammil Ali on 29 Jul 2019
I have a function in which I am using a loop and also discretisation in time. It is solving a PDE using Fully implicit backward method. I want to know how to define the objective function as the values are changing within the loop with time. Also how do I specify the variables which need to be modified for optimisation.
Thank you.

You can use Optimization Expressions for defining objective functions and its variables inside a for-loop. Refer to the following link for more information:

I have two variables to optimise and I put it in the following form:
ratio = optimvar('ratio',1,1,'LowerBound',0,'UpperBound',1);
Dsw = optimvar('Dsw',1,1,'LowerBound',0,'UpperBound',1e-9);
But I get the following error:
Undefined function 'exp' for input arguments of type 'optim.problemdef.OptimizationExpression'.
Error in drying_optimisation_function (line 409)
