The level of technology

The invention relates to a method for predicting the characteristics of the equipment and, in particular, to the use of statistical methods, and models to predict the expected distribution characteristics of the equipment as a function of the variability of the input data. One method for predicting the characteristics of the equipment based on the application of the model of point definitions of input values. The result is a series of point definitions representing a single value for a set of input values. Point definitions used to model equipment, implement, for example, with the aid of a computer. The model generates a single-point response representing the predicted characteristics of equipment.

The disadvantage of this method for predicting the characteristics is that the actual equipment characteristic is a more precise set of values based on a set of input values. Use this method to get many responses would be voluminous task. This task would include statistically variable input variable input in the model, the operation model, the entry point of the response and the subsequent repetition of the process for the next aggregate the input data. As you can imagine, to complete this RA is the notes with an acceptable resolution would have to spend a lot of time and effort.

The invention

An exemplary implementation of the invention is directed to a method for predicting the characteristics of the equipment. Receive input data representing a parameter of the equipment. The input data include a set of values corresponding to the parameter of the equipment. The input data is introduced into the model to form a set of data corresponding to the response of the model to the input data. Derive the system of equations, representing the totality of the data. The system of equations is statistically processed to generate the probabilistic representation of the characteristics of the equipment.

Detailed description of the invention

Figure 1 shows the structural diagram illustrating the procedure of predicting the characteristics of the equipment in an exemplary implementation of the invention. As shown in figure 1, the input data is introduced into the scheme of experiments (DoE), which runs through computer software and used to predict the characteristics of the equipment, usually called the model 22.

In the exemplary implementation shown in figure 1, the model is a thermodynamic model that represents a characteristic of a steam turbine. It is obvious that the invention may be applicable to a variety of models and is not limited to steam turbines. The term equipment refers to different objects, including vehicles (e.g., turbines) and articles of manufacture (for example, a turbine blade). The input data 20 represent the distribution of input values, but not the only input variable. The distribution of input values corresponds to the equipment, such as characteristics of the equipment (for example, dimensional data) or input equipment (e.g., fuel consumption). Model 22 includes an expected set of input values and the result of the model is a large set of data that describes the multi-dimensional surface representing the characteristic of the equipment.

A set of data created by the model represented by the system of equations 24, shown in the form of the function f (x), by fitting a series of equations to sovocool the data. Essentially, these equations are used to describe the model output 22 (e.g., machine code) in algebraic expressions, so you can easily use statistical software and spreadsheets. Once the machine code is converted to a system of equations 24, builds a model 25, based on equations 24, by location of equations 24 in the spreadsheet. After building the model 25 is used the statistical program 26 (for example, analysis by Monte-Carlo) to complete the process. Statistical program 26 provides a description of each input parameter in the form of a statistical distribution and control of any relevant output variable. Performing statistical program 26 provides for the adoption of a statistically correct values for these input distributions, holds value composed of equations and traces the resulting distribution on the output variables. Modeling is usually done for 10000 iterations and response with high resolution.

The execution result of the statistical program 26 is a probabilistic response 28 in the form of a distribution or set of output values and statistics corresponding to the number of output values. Shown as an example in figure 3 and 4 is STATISTICA includes the average value, the median, standard deviation and variance. Probabilistic response 28 provides a powerful tool for optimizing the design characteristics. The interaction and influence between input parameters and output parameters can be easily defined, so you can find the true optimal design. By using distributions of the input data 20, and not individual points, you can understand what the tolerances on the input variables to achieve the desired output.

Figure 2 shows the block diagram of the process of predicting the characteristics of the equipment in accordance with an exemplary implementation of the invention. At operation 30 receives input data representing the distribution of input values. At operation 32, the input data is included in the model equipment. As noted above, the model can have many forms, such as the simulation of the operation of the machine or the modeling characteristics of the object. When the model operation 32 creates a set of data, and for operations 34 shows the system of equations for the approximation of data sets. Equations derived at operation 34, are used to create the model 36 and operations 38 aggregate equations. Statistical processing at operation 38 leads to probabilistic response, which includes the allocation of the giving and statistics for each output value.

Let us now describe the application of an exemplary embodiment of the invention to a steam turbine. Was performed in the process shown in figure 1 and 2, with the General model of a steam turbine and here is the results. For this example was used seven input data 20 (the gap between the guide and the rotor blades, the gap of the shaft seal, square holes for turbine wheel, the thickness of the trailing edge of the nozzle, the area of the throat of the nozzle, the minimum cross-section of the blade and the coefficient of turbulence (half-DoE 22) to create aggregate data used for derivation of the equations 24. Also for this study were simulated input data 20 as having a normal distribution of values with limits ±3σ and ±1σ. As described below with reference to figure 3 and figure 4, the use of two different limits for the input data illustrates the importance of the impact of changes in input data on the distribution of the output.

Figure 3 and 4 shows a frequency histogram generated in accordance with the present invention for the output value (labeled uint32_t) for the input distributions restricted to specified limits ±3σ and ±1σ respectively. 3 and 4 illustrate that the probabilistic response 28 is in the form of the distribution. When using the present invention, the result is a distribution, not detachedly response. In the present invention are actual known distribution of input values to obtain the expected distributions of the projected values.

Creating probabilistic response in the form of distribution facilitates the understanding of the effects of changes in the input parameter. Figure 3 shows the distribution with a standard deviation of 0.11, while in figure 4 the standard deviation is increased to 0.5. This change in variation is important and usually not accounted for, using the above-described single-point method. In addition, the present invention takes into account the variation of the distribution of individual parameter to assess the benefits of process improvement.

As noted above, the invention may be applicable to other types of equipment. For example, the model can provide a medical clamp, and the input data can represent the statistical distribution of the sizes of the clamp and the output of the probabilistic response may represent a voltage clamp. The present invention will allow the user to change the manufacturing tolerances on the input data and see the impact on the statistical distribution of the voltage clamp.

The present invention can be implemented in the form performed using computer methods and devices for implementing these methods. The present invention can be also R is alisoun in the form of machine code, contains commands that are placed on physical media, such as floppy disks, CD-ROMs, hard drives, or any other machine-readable storage medium, when loaded into the computer's machine code and executes it, the computer becomes a device for carrying out the invention. The invention can also be implemented in the form of machine code, for example, or stored in a storage medium, loaded into and/or executed by a computer or transmitted through some medium, such as air line or cable, through an optical fiber or via electromagnetic radiation, when loaded into the computer's machine code and executing it by the computer, the computer becomes a device for carrying out the invention. When implemented on a universal microprocessor segments of machine code form the configuration of the microprocessor to create specific logic circuits.

The invention provides probabilistic response with high resolution (compared to single-point answer) and reduces the amount of time required to complete the process. Analysis input distributions in contrast to the entry point provides more optimized calculation and appreciation is nnow resistance to changes in components. Thus, the invention leads to a more thorough analysis of the system, with the result that he becomes more accurate and complete.

SUBSTANCE: method can be used for criminal and official inquires of road accidents. Method is based upon measurement of speed of pedestrian and calculation its arithmetical mean. Method differs from known ones, as speed of motion is measured experimentally 10 to 30 times with three different pedestrians having like age and physical condition as victim of run-over. Results are processed as small sample by using central deviations and those deviations are used to determine average meaning of speed of motion, standard deviation, error and truth of the average mean. Upon finding truth of average mean the necessary number of trials is calculated which number has to be compared with real number of trials. Additional trials are conducted if necessary. Factor of truth of experimental data is calculated from speeds of motion of pedestrians taking part in experiment. Probability and factor of confidence is determined accordingly to speed of motion of injured person and speeds of motion of pedestrians involved into experiment, as well as according to truth of preset limit values of this parameter. If values of preset factors correspond to legitimate values or limits admitted for investigation of road accidents, statistically true minimal and maximal values of speed of motion of injured pedestrian are calculated on the base of normal distribution law by means of subtraction the speed from its average value and addition of product of factor of confidence with standard deviation. Limit values of speed of motion of injured pedestrian are presented for forensic examination to make calculations determining availability or lack of availability of prevention of run-over. For this purpose the statistically truthful minimal and maximal values of speed of motion of injured pedestrian should be calculated in relation to accessible values or limits of probability which is higher than 0,95 and if confidence with speed of motion of injured pedestrian and pedestrians involved into experiment correspond to each other. Preset precision of pedestrian's speed of motion should be within limits of +-0,5 km/hour.

EFFECT: improved precision of measurement; higher probability of prevention of road accident.
