A novel plant modeling method called High Level Modeling (HLM) to design and develop control-oriented plant model is introduced. The HLM method is specifically designed to expose the design intention at physics level of a target physical system in a straightforward manner so that plant models can be efficiently understood and peer-reviewed from the physical standpoint. The method also enables construction of system equations from the design information based on simple formal rules which guarantees conservation laws. To show the effectiveness of the HLM approach through a concrete use case, it is applied to turbocharger radial compressor modeling, and analysis on the model equations is performed by deriving compressor speed lines and efficiency.
