### Mathematical Modelling of Power Units

What for:

• Determination of unknown parameters

• Optimization of operational decision:

• a current structure choosing - putting into operation or turn devices off

• parameters changing - correction of flows, temperatures, pressures, etc.; load division in collector-kind systems

### Mathematical Modelling of Power Units

What for (cont.):

• Optimization of services and maintenance scope

• Optimization of a being constructed or modernized system - structure fixing and devices selecting

### Mathematical Modelling of Power Units

How – main steps in a modelling process:

• the system finding out

• choice of the modelling approach; determination of:

• the system structure for modelling; simplifications and aggregation

• way of description of the elements

• values of characteristic parameters – the model identification

• the system structure and the parameters writing in

• setting of relations creating the model

• (criterion function)

• use of the created mathematical model of the system for simulation or optimization calculations

### Mathematical Modelling of Power Units

The system finding out:

• coincidence

• invariability

• completeness of a division into subsystems

• separable subsystems

• done with respect to functional aspects

### Mathematical Modelling of Power Units

choice of the modelling approach - determination ofthe system structure

A role of a system structure in a model creation:

• what system elements are considered – objects of „independent” modelling

• mutual relations between the system elements – relations which are to be taken into account and included into the model of the system

• additional information required: parameters describing particular elements of the system

### Mathematical Modelling of Power Units

choice of the modelling approach

- determination of the system structure

• Simplification and aggregation – a choice between the model correctness and calculation possibilities and effectiveness

### Mathematical Modelling of Power Units

choice of the modelling approach

- way of description of the elements

• basing on a physical relations

• basing on an empirical description

### Mathematical Modelling of Power Units

Basic parameters of a model:

• mass accumulated and mass (or compound or elementary substance) flow

• energy, enthalpy, egzergy, entropy and their flows

• specific enthalpy, specific entropy, etc.

• temperature, pressure (total, static, dynamic, partial), specific volume, density,

• temperature drop, pressure drop, etc.

• viscosity, thermal conductivity, specific heat, etc.

### Mathematical Modelling of Power Units

Basic parameters of a model (cont.):

• efficiencies of devices or processes

• devices output

• maximum (minimum) values of some technical parameters

• technological features of devices and a system elements - construction aspects

• geometrical size - diameter, length, area, etc.

• empiric characteristics coefficients

• a system structure; e.g. mutual connections, number of parallelly operating devices

### Mathematical Modelling of Power Units

Physical approach - basic relations:

• equations describing general physical (or chemical) rules, e.g.:

• mass (compound, elementary substance) balance

• energy balance

• movement, pressure balance

• thermodynamic relations

• others

### Mathematical Modelling of Power Units

Physical approach - basic relations (cont.):

• relations describing features of individual processes

• empiric characteristics of processes, efficiency characteristics

• parameters constraints

• some parameters definitions

• other relations – technological, economical, ecological

### Mathematical Modelling of Power Units

Empiric approach - basic relations:

• empiric process characteristics

• parameters constraints

• other relations - economical, ecological, technological

### Load coefficient for 3-zone heat exchanger with a condensate cooler

TC4 – outlet condensate temperature;Tx – inlet condensate temperature;TC1 – inlet heated water temperature;mA3 – inlet steam mass flow;mx – inlet condensate mass flow;mC1 – inlet heated water mass flow.

### Empiric relation for load coefficient in changing operation conditions (according to Beckman):

0 – load coefficient at reference conditions;

mC10 – inlet heated water mass flow at reference conditions;

TC10 – inlet heated water temperature at reference conditions.

### An example of calculations

Load coefficient changes in relation to inlet water temperature and reduced value of the pipes diameter.

### Empiric modelling of processes

• Modelling based only on an analysis of historical data

• No reason-result relations taken into account

• „Black – box” model based on a statistical analysis

### Most popular empiric models

• Linear models

• Neuron nets

• MLP

• Kohonen nets

• Fuzzy neron nets

### Linear Models

• ARX model (AutoRegressive with eXogenous input) – it is assumed that outlet values at a k moment is a finite linear combination of previous values of inlets and outlets, and a value ek

• Developed model of ARMAX type

• Identification – weighted minimal second power

### Neuron Nets - MLP

• Approximation of continuous functions; interpolation

• Learning (weighers tuning) – reverse propagation method

• Possible interpolation, impossible correct extrapolation

• Data from a wide scope of operational conditions are required

### Neuron Nets - FNN

• Takagi – Sugeno structure – a linear combination of input data with non-linear coefficients

• Partially linear models

• Switching between ranges with fuzzy rules

• Neuron net used for determination of input coefficients

• Stability and simplicity of a linear model

• Fully non-linear structure

### Empiric models – where to use

• If a physical description is difficult or gives poor results

• If results are to be obtained quickly

• If the model must be adopted on-line during changes of features of the modelled object

### Empiric models – examples of application

• Dynamic optimization (models in control systems)

• Virtual measuring sensors or validation of measuring signals

### Empiric models – an example of application Combustion in pulverized-fuel boilerDynamic Optimization

• Control of the combustion process to increase thermal efficiency of the boiler and minimize pollution

• NOx emission from the boiler is not described in physical models with acceptable correctness

• Control is required in a real-time; time constants are in minutes
