Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Two optimal experimental design (OED) problems for an enzymatic biodiesel production system are investigated to improve parameter estimation quality. An orthogonalized sensitivity analysis method is firstly implemented to select important parameters. Next the design of measurement set and sampling strategy is developed in the form of two convex optimization problems which are solved by the interior-point algorithm and the Powell’s method, respectively. Simulation results demonstrate the function of OED in reducing parameter estimation errors. The biodiesel concentration is identified to be the most valuable state variable observation, and the parameter estimation accuracy can be improved through optimal sampling design.
