Sparse Representations for Uncertainty Quantification of a Coupled Field-Circuit Problem
We consider a model of an electric circuit, where differential algebraic equations for a circuit part are coupled to partial differential equations for an electromagnetic field part. An uncertainty quantification is performed by changing physical parameters into random variables. A random quantity of interest is expanded into the (generalised) polynomial chaos using orthogonal basis polynomials. We investigate the determination of sparse representations, where just a few basis polynomials are required for a sufficiently accurate approximation. Furthermore, we apply model order reduction with proper orthogonal decomposition to obtain a low-dimensional representation in an alternative basis.
