Previous work in the literature developed similitude-based design scaling techniques that make it possible to take a proven system design and scale it to meet new desired dynamic characteristics. However, such similitude-based scaling is often too restrictive because it may not be feasible to satisfy all of the resulting scaling laws exactly. This paper uses a novel combination of activity-based model reduction and dimensional analysis to scale only the important components of a given dynamic… CONTINUE READING
