Model order reduction of differential algebraic equations arising from the simulation of gas transport networks
We explore the Tractability Index of Differential Algebraic Equations (DAEs) that emerge in the simulation of gas transport networks. Depending on the complexity of the network, systems of index 1 or index 2 can arise. It is then shown that these systems can be rewritten as Ordinary Differential Equations (ODEs). We furthermore apply Model Order Reduction (MOR) techniques such as Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD) to a network of moderate size and complexity and show that one can reduce the system size significantly.
