The SISYPHE project-team is involved in the activities of the European Research Network on System Identification ( ERNSI ) federating major European research teams on system identification.

  • Program: Funded as a SCIENCE project (1992 - 1995), HCM Project (1993-1996), TMR Project (1998 - 2003).

  • Project acronym: ERNSI

  • Project title: European Research Network System Identification

  • Duration: 1992 —

  • Coordinator: The network ERNSI is currently coordinated by Bo Wahlberg, Automatic Control, KTH SE 100 44 Stockholm, Sweden.

  • Other partners: KTH (Sweden), Inria (France), TUD (Technische Universität Darmstadt), TUW (Vienna University of Technology), UCAM-DENG (University of Cambridge), ELEC (Vrije Universiteit Brussel), ULIN (Sweden), UNIPD (Italy).

  • Abstract: Modeling of dynamical systems is fundamental in almost all disciplines of science and engineering, ranging from life science to process control. Engineering uses models for the design and analysis of complex technical systems. System identification concerns the construction, estimation and validation of mathematical models of dynamical physical or engineering phenomena from experimental data.

The SISYPHE project-team, with two other Inria project-teams (PARKAS, S4) participates in the MODRIO project regrouping partners from 7 european countries.

  • Program: ITEA 2.

  • Project acronym: MODRIO.

  • Project title: Model Driven Physical Systems Operation.

  • Duration: 2012 – 2015

  • Coordinator: Daniel Bouskela, EDF, France.

  • Other partners: ABB (Sweden AB), ABB AG (Germany), AIT Austrian Institute Of Technology (Austria), Ampère Laboratory-CNRS-University of Lyon (France), Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences (Germany), Dassault Aviation (France), Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR) (Germany), Digital Product Simulation (DPS) (France), DS AB (Sweden), EADS (France), Enicon Eco-Energy-Consulting GmbH (Austria), Equa Simulation AB (Sweden), IFP Energies nouvelles (France), Ilmenau University of Technology (Germany), Inria (France), ITI (Germany), Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Belgium), Knorr-Bremse (Germany), Linkˆping University (Sweden), LMS Imagine (France), LMS International (Belgium), MathCore Engineering AB (Sweden), Modelon AB (Sweden), Pöyry Finland Oy (Finland), Qtronic (Germany), Scania (Sweden), Semantum Oy (Finland), Sherpa Engineering (France), Siemens AG (Germany), Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery AB Industrial Turbomachinery A.B.

  • Abstract: To meet the evermore stringent safety and environmental regulations for power plants and transportation vehicles, system operators need new techniques to improve system diagnosis and operation. Open standards are necessary for different teams to cooperate by sharing compatible information and data. The objective of the MODRIO project is to extend modeling and simulation tools based on open standards from system design to system diagnosis and operation. This project joined by partners from Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Italy and Sweden has been selected by the board of Information Technology for European Advancement (ITEA 2). The involved Inria project-teams are PARKAS, S4 and SISYPHE.
