Modeling labs (27 h)

Feedback control design, diagnostic/supervision and process optimization typically require a specific modeling approach, which aims to capture the essential dynamics of the system while being computationally efficient. The first part of the class details the guiding principles that can be inferred from different physical domains and how multi-physics models can be obtained for complex dynamical systems while satisfying the principle of energy conservation. This leads to algebro-differential mathematical models that need to be computed with stability and computational efficiency constraints. System identification constitutes the second part of the class, to include knowledge inferred from experimental data in the input/output map set by the model. It provides methods to evaluate the model performance, to estimate parameters, to design "sufficiently informative" experiments and to build recursive algorithms for online estimation.
