Monitoring the dynamics processes in combustors is crucial for safe and efficient operations. However, in practice, only limited data can be obtained due to limitations in the measurable quantities, visualization window, and temporal resolution. This work proposes an approach based on neural differential equations to approximate the unknown quantities from available sparse measurements. The approach tackles the challenges of nonlinearity and the curse of dimensionality in inverse modeling by… Expand
