Abstract. In the article the control and optimization of multistage technological processes were discussed. In the presented research, it was assumed, that in the complex technological processes, the multistage differential-algebraic constraints with unknown consistent initial conditions were considered. To rewrite the infinite-dimensional optimal control problem into the finite-dimensional optimization task, the direct shooting method was applied. Simulated annealing algorithm was proposed as the method, for solving nonlinear optimization problem with constraints. Stretching function was used, to allow us to locate the globally optimal solution. The complex process constraints were treated using constraints aggregation methods. The presented methodology was tested with optimal control problem of the two-reactors system. The numerical simulations were executed in MATLAB environment using Wroclaw Center for Networking and Supercomputing.
