This report deals with grey box modelling applied to the Well Field Optimisation project.
The subject is the real case study of Søndersø, located north-west of Copenhagen, DK.
This report contains a comprehensive description on how the dataset of measurements
taken at Søndersø have been treated and analysed. The purpose of such analysis is
twofold. Firstly is to identify a suitable architecture for the grey-box model. Secondly
to design a procedure to select values from the dataset that will be used for the calibration
of the parameters of the grey-box model. Section 1 describes the Søndersø well field,
and provides an overview of the dataset. Section 2 describes the numeric treatments
that have been applied to the dataset; the result is summarized in Section 3. Section 4
illustrates the analysis performed on the treated dataset. In this section, the fundamental
mechanisms of the well field system are detected and decomposed (subsections 4.1 - 4.3).
Based on the results of such analysis, a simple modelling exercise is performed showing
that linear models can be effectively employed to simulate a well field (subsection
4.4). Section 5 describes a sampling approach, designed to calibrate the parameters of the
grey-box model with a representative database which is also reasonably reduced in size.
Summary and conclusions are in Section 6.
