1 Chapter 7 Development of Empirical Models From Process Data In some situations it is not feasible to develop a theoretical (physically-based model) due to: 1. Lack of information 2. Model complexity 3. Engineering effort required. An attractive alternative: Develop an empirical dynamic model from input-output data. Advantage: less effort is required Disadvantage: the model is only valid (at best) for the range of data used in its development. i.e., empirical models usually don’t extrapolate very well.

2 Simple Linear Regression: Steady-State Model As an illustrative example, consider a simple linear model between an output variable y and input variable u , where and are the unknown model parameters to be estimated and ε is a random error. Predictions of y can be made from the regression model, Chapter 7 ˆ y 1 2 β β ε y u = + + 1 β 2 β 1 2 ˆ ˆ ˆ β β (7-3) y u = + where and denote the estimated values of β 1 and β 2 , and denotes the predicted value of y . 1 ˆ β 2 ˆ β 1 2 β β ε (7-1) i i i Y u = + + Let Y denote the measured value of y . Each pair of ( u i , Y i ) observations satisfies:

Then using (7-3), S can be written as: 2 1 where the -th residual, , is defined as, ˆ (7 4) N i i i i i i S e i e e Y y = = = - -

5 Chapter 7 Least squares estimation can be extended to more general models with: 1. More than one input or output variable. 2. Functionals of the input variables u , such as poly- nomials and exponentials, as long as the unknown parameters appear linearly. A general nonlinear steady-state model which is linear in the parameters has the form, 1 β ε (7-7) p j j j y X = = + Extensions of the Least Squares Approach where each X j is a nonlinear function of u .
