2005-01-2962 Multi-scale modeling of advanced life support systems

By Eric-jan Manders, Scott Bell, Gautam Biswas and David Kortenkamp


Copyright © 2005 SAE International Regenerative life support systems for long duration human space exploration missions present unique design challenges that are also reflected in constructing behavior models of these systems for analysis purposes. These systems have multiple modes of operation and complex non-linear dynamics that occur at multiple time scales. Coarse grained analysis of the complete system over long durations and fine grained temporal analysis of smaller system elements while avoiding computational intractability can be achieved by using multiple modeling and simulation paradigms. We present a multi-level simulation model of an advanced life support system. The simulation model couples a discrete-event approach at the system level, with more detailed hybrid (continuous/discrete) physical system modeling at the sub-system level
