# set_initial_guess¶

Class method.

do_mpc.simulator.Simulator.set_initial_guess(self)

Initial guess for DAE variables. Use the current class attribute z0 to create the initial guess for the DAE algebraic equations.

The simulator uses “warmstarting” to solve the continous/discrete DAE system by using the previously computed algebraic states as an initial guess. Thus, this method is typically only invoked once.

Warning

If no initial values for z0 were supplied during setup, they default to zero.
