I know the Lie symmetry group of the harmonic oscillator differential equation from the literature. It is an 8 parameter Lie group.

5 of these generators generate Noether symmetry: $$G_1=\sin(2t)\frac{\partial}{\partial t}+q\cos(2t)\frac{\partial}{\partial q}$$ $$G_2=\cos(2t)\frac{\partial}{\partial t}-q\sin(2t)\frac{\partial}{\partial q}$$ $$G_3=\cos(t)\frac{\partial}{\partial q}$$ $$G_4=\sin(t)\frac{\partial}{\partial q}$$ $$G_5=\frac{\partial}{\partial t}$$

The other three are: $$G_6=q\frac{\partial}{\partial q}$$ $$G_7=q\sin(t)\frac{\partial}{\partial t}+q^2\cos(t)\frac{\partial}{\partial q}$$ $$G_8=q\cos(t)\frac{\partial}{\partial t}-q^2\sin(t)\frac{\partial}{\partial q}$$

I want to identify generators of Noether symmetry for other differential equations. I can get generators of entire symmetry groups using Maple. I can also get conserved current, but I need some help in identifying which generators correspond to conserved quantities using Maple or some other software.
