Ship-course modeling and control using the SIMSCAPE physical modeling environment
TLDR
The ship-course control system model here developed represents an interesting benchmark in the field of engineering systems to get insight on the physical modeling approach under SIMSCAPE or even under MODELICA, despite its specificity to marine systems.
Experiences from City-Scale Simulation of Thermal Grids
TLDR
The experiences from developing and working with a city-scale simulator of a district heating grid located in Lulea, Sweden and lessons learned are presented along with future research directions, corresponding to identified gaps and challenges.
Coupling physical and machine learning models: case study of a single-family house
TLDR
A physical model of a building’s heating system implemented in Modelica is cosimulated with a machine learning models of a stratified hot water tank implemented in Python, exported as Functional Mock-up Unit using UniFMU.
ModelingToolkit: A Composable Graph Transformation System For Equation-Based Modeling
TLDR
ModelingToolkit is described, a symbolic equationbased modeling system which allows for composable transformations to generate stable, efficient, and parallelized model implementations and how composable model transformations can be combined with automated data-driven surrogate generation techniques, allowing machine learning methods to generate accelerated approximate models within an acausal modeling framework.
District Heating Systems: An Analysis of Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats of the 4GDH
TLDR
The ability of 4GDH to serve as a label bundling and stimulating considerations with respect to the further development of district heating systems and the increased value creation within the national economy through the inclusion of local, renewable energy sources were weighted with the highest relative importance.
Decarbonization of Industrial Energy Systems: A Case Study of Printed Circuit Board manufacturing
TLDR
This paper presents the modelling work towards the creation of a Digital Energy Twin of the energy supply system of a printed boarding circuit manufacturing by means of a classical use case, system design optimization.
Connected Components in Undirected Set-Based Graphs. Applications in Object-Oriented Model Manipulation
TLDR
This work introduces a novel algorithm for finding the connected components of a graph where the vertices and edges are grouped into sets defining a Set--Based Graph, which has the remarkable property of achieving constant computational costs with the number of vertice and edges.

Type-Based Structural Analysis for Modular Systems of Equations
TLDR
This paper investigates a novel approach to a type system for modular systems of equations; i.e., equation systems constructed by composition of individual equation system fragments that reflects which variables occur in which equations.
An Approach to Parallel Simulation of Ordinary Differential Equations
TLDR
This paper investigates methods to partition and simulate differential equation-based models of cyber-physical systems using multiple threads on multi-core CPUs that can share data across threads to avoid simulation performance degradation due to cache conflicts.
Determining over- and under-constrained systems of equations using structural constraint delta
TLDR
This paper describes a novel technique to determine over- and under-constrained systems of equations in models, based on a concept called structural constraint delta, which makes use of static type checking and consists of a type inference algorithm.

MODELICA VERSUS TRNSYS – A COMPARISON BETWEEN AN EQUATION-BASED AND A PROCEDURAL MODELING LANGUAGE FOR BUILDING ENERGY SIMULATION
TLDR
The computation time of the Modelica model was three to four times longer than TRNSYS, but it is believed that dismissing equation-based modeling languages as computation- ally inefficient is a premature conclusion.
