Gernaey 31 August 2009 28150 Learning objectives • At the end of this lesson you should be able to: – Create, in a structured step-wise fashion, a first-principles dynamic model for a process – Implement and simulate the model (exercises, next week!) 31 August 2009 28150 Outline • Introduction • Model development principles • Degrees of freedom analysis • A systematic model development approach • Modelling examples 31 August 2009 28150 Outline Introduction • Model development principles • Degrees of freedom analysis • A systematic model development approach • Modelling examples

2 31 August 2009 28150 What is a model? • A model (M) for a system (S) and an experiment (E) is anything to which E can be applied in order to answer questions (P) about S (Minsky, 1965) S P M E 31 August 2009 28150 Different models • Physical model of a system – Pilot plant • Mathematical model of a system – Equations – Graphs • Linguistic model of a system – Example: If substrate is available, dissolved oxygen consumption of the biomass will increase 31 August 2009 28150 What is a first principles model? • A model developed using the principles of chemistry, physics and biology (conservation laws) • ’first engineering principles model’, ’theoretical model’, ’deterministic model’, ’white box model’ • Steady-state model versus unsteady-state model ( dynamic model ) 31 August 2009 28150 Model classification First engineering principles models Empirical (black Box )models Semi- empirical (grey box) models Process data Process knowledge Neural network, ARX, ARMAX, etc.
3 31 August 2009 28150 Properties of first principles models • Model complexity must be determined (assumptions), depends on model purpose • Can be computationally expensive (not real-time) • May be expensive/time-consuming to obtain • Good for extrapolation, scale-up • Does not require experimental data to obtain (data required for validation and fitting) 31 August 2009 28150 Properties of black-box models • Large number of unknown parameters • Can be obtained quickly (e.g., linear regression) • Model structure is subjective • Dangerous to extrapolate 31 August 2009 28150 Properties of grey-box models • Compromise of first two approaches • Model structure may be simpler • Good versatility, can be extrapolated • Can be run in real-time 31 August 2009 28150 The use of a model Real world problem Mathematical problem Mathematical solution Interpretation of solution

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
