Abstract: “In this paper a flexible and open architecture design for Parameter Estimation and Data Reconciliation (PEDR) software application is proposed by de-coupling it according to the functionalities involved. In the proposed approach the different components that are involved in this application and their interactions are specified and tested. The proposed architecture aims at an improved efficiency and upgrading of the PEDR application by allowing the exchangeability and connectivity of the present components in an easy and consistent way.”

Comments: the authors developed the Parameter Estimation and Data Reconciliation interface specification within the Global CAPE-OPEN project and prototyped its implementation in their software PROCEL. They were tasked with this development within the workpackage extending the scope of the CAPE-OPEN standard coming out of the CAPE-OPEN project. The paper arguments the design of the interface specification found in the CAPE-OPEN documentation set. The paper was presented at ESCAPE-12 in May 2002.
