OPTIMICA Studio™ for Physical Modeling offers state of the art modeling technology for physical and cyber-physical systems.
OPTIMICA Studio™ is based on the Modelica open standard — the leading equation-based and object-oriented language for multidomain modeling and simulation of physical systems.
OPTIMICA Studio™ supports the FMI open standard for model exchange and generates output in the form of FMU:s, the new and rapidly adopted binary format for exchange of simulation models and interoperability between tools.
OPTIMICA Studio™ is the perfect companion for engineers that need to develop simulation models of physical components or subsystems, for integration in FMI compliant tools (Python, MATLAB®/Simulink®, Dymola, Isight, LabVIEW, Silver, TestWeaver, ControlBuild and SIMPACK). Simulation capabilities will soon be integrated into OPTIMICA Studio™.
The Modelica language is designed specifically with demanding modeling applications in mind. Modelica features object-oriented equation-based modeling and simplifies the task of building heterogeneous models containing sub-systems from different domains, such as electronics, thermodynamics, and control systems.
The Functional Mock-up Interface (FMI) is an open standard for exchange of compiled models, targeting tool interoperability and model reuse. The FMI technology is adopted by a large number of open source and commercial tools enabling easy exchange of compiled models. Several tools support export of FMI models and more are following.
