Modelon Presenting at the ANSYS Automotive Simulation World Congress in Munich

Modelon May 25, 2016

Systems engineering solutions with Modelica, FMI, and ANSYS

7-8 June 2016

Modelon will participate in the ANSYS Automotive Simulation World Congress on the 7th-8th of June 2016, in Munich with two presentations.

Dr. Michael Sielemann will present Systems Engineering Solutions with ANSYS – Antilock Braking System Example (June 7, 14:00 – 14:30, Room Cuvillies I) – a collaboration between Modelon and ANSYS Germany which highlights some of the engineering and organizational challenges associated with mechatronic system design for automotive chassis systems.

Using the example of an antilock braking system, a complete system model is created based on component models generated by a number of participants in the design process.

The overall model is then executed in ANSYS Simplorer using the FMI-standard and other software tools to tie the system models into a high level coherent system simulation.

The collaborative simulation process is controlled by a data management backbone.

This higher level simulation allows for earlier virtual verification and reduces the need for prototypes and physical testing.

In the second presentation, Dr. Hubertus Tummescheit will explore the early identification of system requirements compliance in his presentation titled:   Executable Requirements to the Rescue – Using Modelica and FMI to Evaluate Requirements Compliance Early in System Design (June 8, 11:00 – 11:30, Room Holl).

In this presentation, Modelica and the Functional Mock-up Interface standards couple requirement monitors and executable models to evaluate the system’s compliance to critical requirements continuously during the development cycle. In addition, the benefits of the tried and tested paradigm of “continuous integration” outside of its home field of software development for model based design will be highlighted.

This presentation demonstrates the process of analyzing a cyber-physical system to identify its deficiencies. Specifically, a vehicle thermal management system of a typical passenger automobile will serve as the use case.   Using requirements from the IBM Doors environment, the physical system modeling will be done using Modelica tools and the ANSYS SCADE suite will be employed for controller development.

The World Automotive Simulation Congress provides a unique opportunity to explore the latest simulation technologies and processes across the global automotive industry.

We hope to see you there!
