Fitpack Library- How to use it?

Post by polppp » 1 month ago

Could somebody help me with this simple example so I can understand how this function works?

I have 10 measurements y every, one per hour.

Now I wan to analyse this data in 5 minutes frame resolution so I need to fit a curve of 120 points at this 10 points (x,y) .

I create the 3 dimensional fit.gdx file that the fitfclib function needs.

And then I write this:

$funclibin fitcurve fitfclib

function fitp /fitcurve.fitparam/
fit /fitcurve.fitfunc / ;

But I don't understand from the gams documentation (https://www.gams.com/latest/testlib_ml/ ... lib_fitlib) how to use the fit function and take the resulting curve. I attached the .gms file.

Hi,

There are a few things that are not quite right with your model:

1) The function data (fitpack) is loaded at compile time but you create this at run time. That won't work. Since you data is simple you can just have the fitdata table with data statement and then use $gdxout fn/$unload/$gdxout (compile time GDX export) to create the GDX file before GAMS loads the function library. Read more about the difference between compile and run time at https://www.gams.com/latest/docs/UG_Gam ... ll_TwoPass

2) You have 10 measures (one for each hour) this only covers 9 hour intervals (you need to have points for the boundaries). So to cover the 120 5-minute points you would need to have the function at hour 0. So the program below only gives you the function values starting starting after hour 1 (i.e. Tf=12). You can change the bounds via the fitParam function (second argument 4) (you renamed it fitp in your model) as described here (https://www.gams.com/latest/docs/UG_Ext ... ackLibrary) but this will give you poor function values because it depends very much on the degree of the spline you use. So better make an additional data point.

The program is pretty short:

Code: Select all

SET T  'Set: hours'        /1*10/
    Tf 'Set: five minutes' /1*120/;

Table fitdata(*,T,*)
      x    y
1.1   1    5
1.2   2   10
1.3   3   16
1.4   4   15
1.5   5    7
1.6   6   18
1.7   7   14
1.8   8   16
1.9   9   10
1.10 10    8;
$gdxout fit
$unload fitdata
$gdxout

$funclibin fitcurve fitfclib

function fitp /fitcurve.fitparam/
         fit  /fitcurve.fitfunc / ;

Parameter fiveMinuteSpline(Tf);

fiveMinuteSpline(Tf)$(ord(Tf)>=12) = fit(1,Tf.val/12);
display fiveMinuteSpline;
The display gives you:

Code: Select all
