## Robust optimization of nonlinear dynamic systems with application to a jacketed tubular reactor KU Leuven

We present robust optimization techniques for dynamic systems which are affected by time-varying uncertainties. After reviewing existing techniques from the field of reachability analysis and ellipsoidal calculus, we discuss how to over-estimate the influence of uncertainty in nonlinear dynamic systems. The corresponding strategies lead to a framework which can be used to solve min-max optimal control problems in a conservative approximation. ...
