Diagnosis of Singular Points of DAEs

D. Estevez-Schwarz

At a singular point of a DAE, the IVP fails to have a unique solution. All results concerning the existence and uniqueness of the IVP trace back to the Picard-Lindelöf-Theorem, whereas for DAEs the implicit function theorem is used. Proven results are given for so-called regularity-regions, that can be characterized considering linearized problems. Automatic (or Algorithmic) Differentiation (AD) opens new possibilities to realize an analysis of DAEs and to monitor the assumptions of regularity regions. We present how the index determination, the computation of consistent initial values, and the diagnosis of singular points can be reliably undertaken for DAEs up to index three. The approach uses the projector based analysis for DAEs employing AD. Different approaches are considered and illustrated by some examples, with particular emphasis on electrical circuits containing controlled sources.
