September 27, Minimum required formulation Minimum required formulation – To achieve the modeling goal systematically How do we formalize and generalize this structure ? How do we formalize and generalize this structure ? Basic formulation Our approach

10 Dr. Rodrigo Castro I3M–SESDE Athens, Greece. September 27, Bondgraph is a graphical modeling technique Bondgraph is a graphical modeling technique – Rooted in the tracking of power [Joules/sec=Watt] – Represented by effort variables (e) and flow variables (f) Goal: Goal: – Sound physical modeling of generalized flows of energy – Self checking capabilities for thermodynamic feasibility Strategy: Strategy: – Bondgraphic modeling of phenomenological processes – Including emergy tracking capabilities Bondgraphic approach The Bond Graph Formalism e f Power = e · f e: Effort f: Flow

12 Dr. Rodrigo Castro I3M–SESDE Athens, Greece. September 27, As every bond defines two separate variables – The effort e and the flow f – We need two equations to compute values for these two variables It is always possible to compute one of the two variables at each side of the bond. A vertical bar symbolizes the side where the flow is being computed. Causal Bonds The Bond Graph Formalism e f

13 Dr. Rodrigo Castro I3M–SESDE Athens, Greece. September 27, Local balances of energy Local balances of energy Junctions The Bond Graph Formalism 0 e1e1 e2e2 e3e3 f1f1 f2f2 f3f3 e 2 = e 1 e 3 = e 1 f 1 = f 2 + f 3 1 e1e1 e2e2 e3e3 f1f1 f2f2 f3f3 f 2 = f 1 f 3 = f 1 e 1 = e 2 + e 3 Junctions of type 0 have only one flow equation, and therefore, they must have exactly one causality bar. Junctions of type 1 have only one effort equation, and therefore, they must have exactly (n-1) causality bars.
