Join us at the WEEF-GEDC 2021 and prepare for the future of simulation with reduced order modeling.

Data science elevates simulation driven design to a new level. A control design process can be drastically shortened by an AI based system identification while the flexibility increases.

The Workshop utilizes a ball balancing table to demonstrate this transition away from a traditional physics- based approach. It builds the basis of a project-based learning class that let students explore the possibilities and limitations that arises with data science.

The new approach will be introduced in the context of different approaches of modern control design:

  •  The simulation-based approach uses digital twins of various complexities: linear, nonlinear and full 3D based twins - which can be replaces by the real system finally.
  • The data scienced based approach uses a short set of data to teach an AI based identification of the dynamic system. The results will lead in a control configuration that can be applied on the real system directly. A straight comparison of flexibility, stability and performance demonstrates the power of AI based control design.
