This site describes a Van der Pol Oscillator variant with three binary controls instead of only one continuous control.

## Mathematical formulation

The mixed-integer optimal control problem is given by

## Parameters

These fixed values are used within the model:

## Reference Solutions

If the problem is relaxed, i.e., we demand that be in the continuous interval instead of the binary choice , the optimal solution can be determined by means of direct optimal control.

The optimal objective value of the relaxed problem with is . The objective value of the binary controls obtained by Combinatorial Integral Approimation (CIA) is .
