pyGasControls library (simulation software)

Author: Martin Gugat, Enrique Zuazua, Aleksey Sikstel, FAU DCN-AvH Code:   [HINT] To run the software on your computer, you may have to install additional standard software packages (like cmake and a c++ compiler) and additional libraries (lapack, PETSc).   In order to optimize the operation of gas transportation networks, as a first step a powerful simulation software is mandatory.…

pyGasControls Framework

pyGasControls Framework

pyGasControls Framework By Martin Gugat, Enrique Zuazua, Aleksey Sikstel In order to optimize the operation of gas transportation networks, as a first step a powerful simulation software is mandatory. The flow model from continuum mechanics leads to a nonlinear hyperbolic system of balance laws for each pipe. For the dynamics of the system, the friction term that models the pressure…

Gas networks uncertainty and Probust constraints: model, distribution and optimization

Gas networks uncertainty and Probust constraints: model, distribution and optimization

Gas networks uncertainty and Probust constraints: model, distribution and optimization By Martin Gugat Gas transport and distribution systems are usually operating under complex pipelines network topologies which make possible gas flow over interconnected stations -nodes- and branches under a variety of conditions, especially large-scale gas infrastructures. As many applications contain different types of uncertainties (i.e. roughness coefficients of the pipe)…

Convexity and Starshapedness of feasible sets in Stationary Flow Networks

Convexity and Starshapedness of feasible sets in Stationary Flow Networks

Convexity and Starshapedness of feasible sets in Stationary Flow Networks By Martin Gugat, Michael Schuster This research was funded by DFG in the SFB Transregio 154: Mathematical modelling, simulation and optimization using the example of gas networks.   Uncertainty often plays an important role in application driven modeling. This often leads to optimization problems with probabilistic constraint. The main task…
