The DYMASOS project focuses on the control of large-scale “System of Systems” that are coupled by exchange of matter and energy. A key challenge with regard to control is that each system has some degree of autonomy in its respective decisions and behavior, which disallows centralized control methods. This paper provides an overview on modeling and optimization techniques that are applied in DYMASOS and points out the general challenges that arise when applying them to real-world case studies
