On Discrete and Hybrid Representation of Hybrid Systems
1994 (English)In: Proceedings of the 1994 European Simulation and Modelling Conference, 1994, 1085-1089 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In this paper we discuss the mathematical representation of hybrid systems, i.e. systems comprising of continuous and discrete elements. Starting from first principles of physics, we set out a number of requirements to be met by a hybrid formalism. We then propose hybrid transition systems as a formalism satisfying these requirements. The paper is concluded by discussing the option of representing hybrid systems by means of discrete formalisms. A siphon pump machine is used as an illustratory example throughout the paper.
