  • An automated data-centric infrastructure, Process Informatics Model (PrIMe), was applied to validation and optimization of a syngas combustion model. The Bound-to-Bound Data Collaboration (B2BDC) module of PrIMe was employed to discover the limits of parameter modifications based on uncertainty quantification (UQ) and consistency analysis of the model–data system and experimental data, including shock-tube ignition delay times and laminar flame speeds. Existing syngas reaction models are reviewed, and the selected kinetic data are described in detail. Empirical rules were developed and applied to evaluate the uncertainty bounds of the literature experimental data. Here, the initial H 2/CO reaction model, assembled frommore » 73 reactions and 17 species, was subjected to a B2BDC analysis. For this purpose, a dataset was constructed that included a total of 167 experimental targets and 55 active model parameters. Consistency analysis of the composed dataset revealed disagreement between models and data. Further analysis suggested that removing 45 experimental targets, 8 of which were self-inconsistent, would lead to a consistent dataset. This dataset was subjected to a correlation analysis, which highlights possible directions for parameter modification and model improvement. Additionally, several methods of parameter optimization were applied, some of them unique to the B2BDC framework. The optimized models demonstrated improved agreement with experiments compared to the initially assembled model, and their predictions for experiments not included in the initial dataset (i.e., a blind prediction) were investigated. The results demonstrate benefits of applying the B2BDC methodology for developing predictive kinetic models.« less

  • This paper proposes a probabilistic collocation method (PCM) to quantify the uncertainties with dynamic simulations in power systems. The appraoch was tested on a single-machine-infinite-bus system and the over 15,000 -bus Western Electricity Coordinating Council (WECC) system. Comparing to classic Monte-Carlo (MC) method, the proposed PCM applies the Smolyak algorithm to reduce the number of simulations that have to be performed. Therefore, the computational cost can be greatly reduced using PCM. The algorithm and procedures are described in the paper. Comparison was made with MC method on the single machine as well as the WECC system. The simulation results showsmore » that using PCM only a small number of sparse grid points need to be sampled even when dealing with systems with a relatively large number of uncertain parameters. PCM is, therefore, computationally more efficient than MC method.« less
