Why use PSOPT

These are some reasons why users may wish to use PSOPT
  • Users who for any reason do not have access to commercial optimal control solvers and wish to employ a free open source package for optimal control which does not need a proprietary software environment to run on.
  • Users who need to link an optimal control solver from a C++ application.
  • Users who want to do research with the software, for instance by implementing their own problems, or by customising the code.

PSOPT does not require a commercial software environment to run on, or to be compiled. PSOPT is fully compatible with the GCC compiler, and has been developed under Ubuntu Linux, a free operating system.
