The application of optimization to large-scale dynamic systems has become more common in both industry and academia during the last decades. Dynamic Optimization Problems (DOP) occur in many di erent fields and contexts, including optimal control, parameter and state estimation, and design optimization. Examples of applications are minimization of material and energy consumption during set point transitions in power plants  and chemical processes , controlling kites for wind power generation , and estimating occupancy and ambient air flow in buildings .
