Terminology

- •
Block: a technology that produces, consumes, converts, stores or transports energy

- •
Controller: a technology that control a block or a group of blocks

- •
Location: a site

- •
Node: a combination of blocks, controllers and a location

Terminology - 2

- •
modular time integration / multi-framing / multi-rate (and multi-method) integration /// modular simulation

- •
clocked discretized continuous-time

- •
communication step size control

- •
algebraic loops / cyclic dependencies

- •
time-based block diagrams

- •
coupled system with direct feed-through

- •
sequential modular time integration methods (for coupled multi-body system models)

- •
classical monolithic simulation techniques

- •
coupling strategies (coupling mechanism) and partitioning

- •
block oriented representation: \(u_{j}\rightarrow\boxed{\dot{x_{j}}=f_{j}(x_{j},u_{j})}\rightarrow y_{j}=g_{j}(x_{j},u_{j})\)

- •
sampling points: \(T_{n}\) (Kubler 2000)

- •
macro steps: \(T_{n}\rightarrow T_{n+1}\) (Kubler 2000)

- •
sampling rate: \(H_{n}=T_{n+1}-T_{n}\) (Kubler 2000)
