Two numerical methods reviewed are sequential and simultaneous simulation techniques.

!!!Sequential Simulation

Sequential simulation methods take successive time steps in the simulation horizon and often refine the size of each step to meet a specified error tolerance. Euler's method is the most basic method for sequential simulation while other methods generally offer improved accuracy and therefore allow larger step sizes.

The DAE can be solved with a variety of numerical methods. Two numerical methods reviewed are sequential and simultaneous simulation techniques.

!!!!Sequential Simulation

to:
The DAE can be solved with a variety of analytic or numeric methods. Analytic approaches are possible for simple systems such as systems with one or two equations. Numeric methods are used with more complicated systems but these methods have approximation errors that may deviate from the exact solution. A first step in model development is to draw a schematic, list the assumptions, and write the differential and algebraic equations that describe the system.

!!!!Simultaneous Simulation

Simultaneous simulation methods are used to converge all of the state variable predictions together instead of one step at a time. Orthogonal collocation on finite elements is a popular method to convert the DAE into a Nonlinear Programming (NLP) problem for solution by efficient solvers.

 ''0 < g(x,p)''
 Given ''x'_0_''' and ''p''
