Paper: Model Order Reduction for Gas and Energy Networks

July 18, 2021
model reduction error plotIn this work C. Himpe, S. Grundel and P. Benner develop a transient gas network simulation model, test multiple adapted system-theoretic as well as data-driven model reduction algorithms, and compare model-solver-reductor ensembles.

Paper: Structure-preserving interpolation for model reduction of parametric bilinear systems

July 10, 2021
Parametric bilinear interpolationThis paper by P. Benner (CSC), S. Gugercin (VT) and S. W. R. Werner (CSC) extends the framework for structure-preserving interpolation of regular subsystem transfer functions of structured bilinear control systems to the parametric system case. It got published in Automatica, a Journal of IFAC.

Demonstrator MAXThermal effects are the most dominant source for displacements in machine tools and thus work-piece inaccuracies during the manufacturing process. A promising strategy to meet the ever-increasing accuracy requirements is the use of predictive models for, e.g., parameter and design optimizations or online correction of the thermally induced error at the tool center point (TCP) in the production process. However, these techniques require fast but precise simulations. The need for high model accuracy is in direct contrast to the desired real-time capabilities. Model order reduction (MOR) is an attractive tool to overcome this problem. A modeling toolchain, which is tailored for the effective construction of fast and accurate models is proposed and demonstrated, emphasizing the involved MOR step.
