  • RORPack (“Robust Output Regulation Package”) is an open source Matlab toolbox and Python library for robust output tracking and disturbance rejection control of linear (approximated) controlled PDE and ODE systems. The package includes functionality for automated controller construction, closed-loop simulation, and visualisation of results, as well as a number of example files on control of linear PDE systems (1D and 2D heat equations, wave equations, etc.).
