Objectives

We will cover: The basic fundamentals of data reconciliation. Linear and Bilinear systems. MATLAB implementation.

Problem Description
Using mass balances, calculate the value of F6:

## Many solutions possible. Redundant measurements.

Data Reconciliation
All measurements have errors. Take advantage of redundant information. Formulate as constrained optimization problem. Analytical solution for linear and bilinear constraints. Linear Constraints Minimize: Subject to: Where: y : m by 1 vector of raw measurements. : m by 1 vector of estimates. y V : m by m covariance matrix. A: Incidence matrix - mass balances. )T V 1 (y y ) J ( y ) =(y y =0 Ay

## Analytical Solution: Linear Data Reconciliation

Using Lagrange multipliers .... , can be calculated from: ... the estimates, y W = I VAT (AVAT )1 A = Wy y Cov( y ) = WVW T Procedure (MATLAB)

Create y from measurements Obtain V from measurement standard deviations (V = diag(i2 )) Use mass balances to obtain A Calculate W , y Extra: what are estimates standard deviations, i ? i = diag(Cov( y ))
