ALOP-Colloquium with Prof. Dr. Volker Mehrmann, TU Berlin

November 9 / 16:00 - 18:00

On Monday, November 9. 2020 at 16:00 c.t. Prof. Dr. Volker Mehrmann, TU Berlin will present his recent work at our colloquium entitled

Hierarchical energy based modeling, simulation and control  of multi-physics systems.

Abstract:   The next level of digitization will create digital twins of every product or process. To do this in a mathematical rigorous and risk and error controlled way, a new modeling, simulation and optimization paradigm is needed. While automated modularized modeling is common in some domains like circuit design or multi-body dynamics, it becomes increasingly challenging  when systems or numerical solvers from different physical domains are coupled, due to largely different scales or modeling accuracy, and very different software technologies.

A recent system theoretic approach to address these challenges is the use of network based energy based modeling via constrained port-Hamiltonian (pH) systems, where the coupling is done in a physically meaningful way via energy variables. Furthermore, for each subsystem a whole model hierarchy can be employed  ranging from very fine grane models to highly reduced surrogate  models arising from model reduction or data based modeling. The model hierarchy allows adaptivity not only in the discretization but also in the model selection.

We will present an overview over the  hierarchical pH modeling approach and illustrate the advantages:

Very robust models which are close to the real physics,  invariance of the structure under Galerkin projection discretization or model reduction as well as state and time dependent coordinate changes.

The results are illustrated with numerical results at the hand of several real world applications.

The event is a virtual event via ZOOM. The link will be distributed via email.
