Given that diff is not supported by CVX, I don’t see how to do it without a for loop. Your code seems to work (I have no idea what it’s supposed to be doing though), even though you declared SOC as having T elements, but set soc(T+1).

By the way, when people around “here” see SOC constraint, they probably think it is Second Order Cone constraint.

yes sir mark I have set to T-1 in the loop you are right, by this for loop I want to implement that state of charge(SOC) of battery in the next time period should be equal SOC in previous time period + charging discharging power in previous time period.

SOC(t+1) = SOC(t) + Pcha_disch(t)
