The Computation of Consistent Initial Values for Nonlinear Index-2 Differential-Algebraic Equations
The computation of consistent initial values for differential-algebraic equations (DAEs) is essential for staring a numerical integration. Based on the tractability index concept a method is proposed to filter those equations of a system of index-2 DAEs, whose differentiation leads to an index reduction. The considered equation class covers Hessenberg-systems and the equations arising from the simulation of electrical networks by means of Modified Nodal Analysis (MNA). The index reduction provides a method for the computation of the consistent initial values. The realized algorithm is described and illustrated by examples.
