Model Order Reduction for Systems with Moving Loads

Modellordnungsreduktion für Systeme mit bewegten Lasttermen

In this contribution we present two approaches allowing to find a reduced order approximant of a full order model featuring a moving load term. First, we apply the Balanced Truncation (BT) method to a switched linear system (SLS) using the special structure given in the spatially discretized model. The second approach treats the variability as a continuous parameter dependence and uses the iterative rational Krylov algorithm (IRKA) to compute a parameter preserving reduced order model.


In diesem Beitrag werden zwei Ansätze vorgestellt, welche es erlauben, ein reduziertes Modell eines Originalsystems mit beweglichem Lastterm zu bestimmen. Der erste Ansatz verwendet die Methode des balancierten Abschneidens (BT) zur Reduktion eines geschalteten, linearen Systems (SLS), welches sich aus der speziellen diskreten Struktur des Modells ergibt. Der zweite Ansatz behandelt die Variabilität als eine stetige Parameterabhängigkeit und verwendet den iterativen, rationalen Krylov Algorithmus (IRKA) zur Berechnung eines parametererhaltenden, reduzierten Modells.

Schlagwörter: Modellordnungsreduktion; parametrisch; linear zeitinvariante Systeme; geschaltete lineare Systeme

Keywords: Model order reduction; parametric; linear time invariant systems; switched linear systems
