Abstract [en]

Designing modern aircraft is not an easy task. Today, it is not enough to optimize aircraft sub-systems at a sub-system level. Instead, a holistic approach is taken whereby the constituent sub-systems need to be designed for the best joint performance. The State-of-the-Art (SotA) in simulating and exchanging simulation models is moving forward at a fast pace. As such, the feasible use of simulation models has increased and additional benefits can be exploited, such as analysing coupled sub-systems in simulators. Furthermore, if aircraft sub-system simulation models are to be utilized to their fullest extent, opensource tooling and the use of open standards, interoperability between domain specific modeling tools, alongside robust and automated processes for model Verification and Validation (V&V) are required.

The financial and safety related risks associated with aircraft development and operation require well founded design and operational decisions. If those decisions are to be founded upon information provided by models and simulators, then the credibility of that information needs to be assessed and communicated. Today, the large number of sensors available in modern aircraft enable model validation and credibility assessment on a different scale than what has been possible up to this point. This thesis aims to identify and address challenges to allow for automated, independent, and objective methods of integrating sub-system models into simulators while assessing and conveying the constituent models aggregated credibility.

The results of the work include a proposed method for presenting the individual models’ aggregated credibility in a simulator. As the communicated credibility of simulators here relies on the credibility of each included model, the assembly procedure itself cannot introduce unknown discrepancies with respect to the System of Interest (SoI). Available methods for the accurate simulation of coupled models are therefore exploited and tailored to the applications of aircraft development under consideration. Finally, a framework for automated model validation is outlined, supporting on-line simulator credibility assessment according to the presented proposed method.

Abstract [en]

An efficient methodology for verification, validation, and credibility assessment of simulation models and simulator applications is an enabler for the aeronautical industrys increasing reliance on modeling and simulation in system design and verification and on training. As a complement to traditional document-centric approaches, this paper presents a method for credibility assessment of simulator applications, in which credibility information is presented to end users directly during simulation. The central idea is that each model in a simulator is extended with a metamodel describing different aspects of credibility. The metamodel includes a number of static credibility measures and a dynamic measure that may vary during simulation. The concept is implemented and tested in two system simulators for the Saab Gripen fighter aircraft. According to the evaluation, the concept facilitates an intuitive overview of model dependencies, as well as credibility information for individual models and for a simulator as a whole. This implies a support for detecting test plan deficiencies or that a simulator configuration is not a suitable platform for the execution of a particular test. Furthermore, model developers and end users are encouraged to reflect upon central credibility aspects like intended use, model fidelity, and test worthiness in their daily work.

Abstract [en]

Model Validation and Verification (V&V) has historically often been considered a final step in the model development process. However, to justify model-based design decisions throughout the entire system development process, a methodology for continuous model V&V is essential. That is, model V&V activities should be fast and easy to reiterate as new information becomes available. Using a high fidelity simulation model of the Environmental Control System (ECS) in the Saab Gripen fighter aircraft as a guiding example, this paper further extends to an existing semiautomatic framework for model steady-state validation developed during ECS model validation efforts. Generic methods for identification of steady-state operation are a prerequisite for steady-state validation of industry grade physics based models against insitu measurements. Four different established methods for steady-state identification are investigated and compared: steady-state conditions on the standard deviation estimated from in-situ measurements, conditions on the variation coefficient, t-test on the slope of a simple regression line, and comparison of differently estimated variances. The methods’ applicability, on ECS measurements in particular, is evaluated utilizing steady-state identification needs defined during Gripen ECS model validation activities.

Abstract [en]

Numerical stability is a key aspect in co-simulation of physical systems. Decoupling a system into independent sub-models will introduce time delays on interface variables. By utilizing physical time delays for decoupling, affecting the numerical stability can be avoided. This requires interpolation, to allow solvers to request input variables for the time slot where they are needed. The FMI for co-simulation standard does not support fine-grained interpolation using interpolation tables. Here, various modifications to the FMI standard are suggested for improved handling of interpolation. Mechanical and thermodynamic models are used to demonstrate the need for interpolation, as well as to provide an industrial context. It is shown that the suggested improvements are able to stabilize the otherwise unstable connections.

Abstract [en]

Modelling and Simulation is key in aircraft system development. This paper presents a novel, multi-purpose, desktop simulator that can be used for detailed studies of the overall performance of coupled sub-systems, preliminary control design, and multidisciplinary optimization. Here, interoperability between industrially relevant tools for model development and simulation is established via the Functional Mockup Interface (FMI) and System Structure and Parametrization (SSP) standards. Robust and distributed simulation is enabled via the Transmission Line element Method (TLM). The advantages of the presented simulator are demonstrated via an industrially relevant use-case where simulations of pilot thermal comfort are coupled to Environmental Control System (ECS) steadystate and transient performance.
