Design Optimization and Control Lab

Welcome to the Design Optimization and Control (DOC) Lab! The lab is directed by Donald Docimo, and is based in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Texas Tech University. Our research focuses on the application of advanced modeling, design, and control techniques to energy systems. Key areas of study include:

  • Advanced control algorithms

  • Simultaneous design optimization and optimal control

  • Model reduction

  • Systems such as...

    • Battery Packs

    • Electrified Vehicles (Automotive, Aerial, etc.)

    • Renewable Energy Systems

    • Building Energy Systems Connected to the Grid
