Incremental Identification of Hybrid Models of Dynamic Process Systems
This contribution presents the so called incremental approach to the general modeling task and shows various fields of application as well as conceptual extensions of the method. The incremental model identification procedure has been developed within a collaborative interdisciplinary research center (CRC) at RWTH Aachen. First, the so called MEXA process, which is at the core of the research at the CRC is presented. Next, the incrementalmodel identification approach (which is one crucial step within the MEXA process) is contrasted with the classical simultaneous approach. The application of the incremental approach is then shown for the special case of hybrid reaction kinetic models. In a next step, the basic idea of the incremental approach - the decomposition of the problem into simpler subproblems - is generalized to also account for (mechanistic and hybrid) algebraic and dynamic models (from arbitrary fields, e.g., not necessarily reaction kinetics). Finally, open questions within the incremental framework are discussed and the future research focus is given.
