How to get the state trajectory with a GIVEN input VECTOR using ode45 solver
12 views (last 30 days)
I would like to check whether my previous trajectory is plausible or not.
From the previous calculations I obtained a 50x1 double VECTOR I called u_opt , which represents the input (u) of the system of equations You see below.
function f = calcf(t,x,u,param)
% Physical parameter in the struct "param"
M = param.M;
g = param.g;
L = param.L;
m = param.m;
d = param.d;
Sx = sin(x(3)); % sin(x)
Cx = cos(x(3)); % cos(x)
N = M + m*(1-Cx^2); % denominator
f = [x(2); (1/N)*(-m*g*Cx*Sx + m*L*x(4)^2*Sx - d*x(2)+ u); x(4); (1/(N*L))*((m+M)*g*Sx -Cx*(m*L*x(4)^2*Sx - d*x(2)) - Cx*u)];
Now I would like to hand this vector u_opt over to the ode45 solver to obtain a 50x4 double x_ode that I can compare with my previous trajectory and see if it's plausible or not as follows:
[t_ode,x_ode] = ode45(@(t,x)calcf(t,x,u_opt,param),tspan,x0);
with tspan and x0 being just
tspan = linspace(0,tf,N); % N=50 - tf=5s ... final time
x0 = [0;0;pi;0]; % start state - x0_1 position , x0_2 velocity , x0_3 angle , x0_4 angular velocity
The Command window shows this error
Error in ode45 (line 115) odearguments(FcnHandlesUsed, solver_name, ode, tspan, y0, options, varargin);
Error using odearguments (line 95)
@(T,X)CALCF(T,X,U_OPT,PARAM)returns a vector of length 102, but the length of initial conditions vector is 4. The vector returned by
@(T,X)CALCF(T,X,U_OPT,PARAM) and the initial conditions vector must have the same number of elements.
The ode45 solver seems to work with a given input being a scalar, but I would like to calculate the solution of the diff. equation for every state at a time 't' being element of tspan, so that I ca compare my results / plots. That's why I want the vector u_opt to be the input.
Can anyone help me?
Thanks and cheers!

ode45() is not suitable for finding multiple solutions, except through the mechanism of running multiple times with different u until the number of distinct solutions found has accumulated to the number desired. A loop can be run over the ode and the solution can be concatenated to get the desired solution. Refer to the following code:
% number of partitions of the time interval, tf .. final time
tspan = linspace(0,tf,N);
tAll = zeros(length(u_opt),1);
xAll = zeros(length(u_opt),4);
% Could be whatever the index of tspan you want
idx = 25;
for k = 1:numel(u_opt)
[tode,xode] = ode45(@(t,x)calc_f(t,x,u_opt(k),param),tspan,x0);
tAll(k) = tode(idx);
xAll(k,:) = xode(idx,:);
