In this paper the optimal control of electrical drives like elevators and conveyor machines is approached. Optimal control for moving components means better energy efficiency and also mechanical shock free operation provides a better component lifetime. In the first part of the paper the concepts of optimal control for stationary and dynamic regime together with the optimizing methods such as Gradient algorithm, Lagrange multipliers, Pontryaghin theory are emphasized. For each kind of regime and methods, examples used in electrical drives for transport are presented. In the last part of the paper, an optimal control of movement of a robotic arm is designed and an other for mining elevators is modeled and simulated using Rapid Prototyping methods in the Simulink-dSpace platform.
