Modelon will host two tutorials at the 9th International Modelica Conference in Munich, September 3-5, 2012. This is a great opportunity to familiarize with our products and solutions. Note that you register to the tutorials when you register to the conference.
This tutorial session will allow attendees to be introduced to the capabilities of Dymola and the Vehicle Dynamics Library (VDL). Attendees will have the opportunities to walk-through the library.
The benefits of Modelica-based tools will be highlighted through guided, hands-on example experiments. These examples will demonstrate how Dymola/VDL can be successfully used at any phase of the vehicle design process with experiments ranging from the vehicle component to the system level.
Dynamic optimization is becoming a standard industrial technology to solve a wide range of industrial engineering problems. These include optimal control and model predictive control, model calibration and state estimation as well as design and sizing problems.
In this tutorial, participants will get hands on experiences with formulating and solving engineering problems where simulation based on the FMI standard, dynamic optimization based on the Optimica extension and Python scripting are used as building blocks.
During the tutorial, we will also discuss challenges and pitfalls in optimization of industrial processes, and we highlight modeling considerations for dynamic optimization. The open source platform JModelica.org is used in the tutorial.
