Converting DAE models to ODE models: application to reactive Rayleigh distillation

Abstract : This paper illustrates the application of an index reduction method to some differential algebraic equations (DAE) modelling the reactive Rayleigh distillation. After two deflation steps, this DAE is converted to an equivalent first-order explicit ordinary differential equation (ODE). This ODE involves a reduced number of dependent variables, and some evaluations of implicit functions defined, either from the original algebraic constraints, or from the hidden ones. Consistent initial conditions are no longer to be computed; at the opposite of some other index reduction methods, which generate a drift-off effect, the algebraic constraints remain satisfied at any time; and, finally, the computational effort to solve the ODE may be less than the one associated to the original DAE.
