Dynamic Modeling Laboratory for systems engineering
Scanscot Technology is Nordic reseller of Dymola, a complete tool for modeling and simulation of integrated and complex systems for use within automotive, aerospace, robotics, process and other applications.
Dymola enables simulation of dynamic behavior and complex interactions between systems of many engineering fields, such as mechanical, electrical, thermodynamic, hydraulic, pneumatic, thermal and control systems. This means that users of Dymola can build more integrated models and have simulations results that better depict reality.
Dymola has unique multi-engineering capabilities which means that models can consist of components from many engineering domains. This allows for models of complete systems that better depict reality.
Libraries in many different engineering domains are available that contain components for mechanical, electrical, control, thermal, pneumatic, hydraulic, power train, thermodynamics, vehicle dynamics, air -conditioning, etc.
The Systems engineering capabilities of Dymola empower you to model and simulate any physical component that can be described by ordinary differential equations and algebraic equations.
Dymola’s graphical editor and the multi-engineering libraries make modeling easy. The libraries include elements corresponding to physical devices which are simply dragged-and-dropped to build the model. Interactions between the components are conveniently described by graphical connections that model the physical coupling of the components. This means that models are intuitively organized the same way as the physical system is composed.
Open and flexible
The Dymola environment is completely open in contrast to many modeling tools that have a fixed set of component models and proprietary methods for introducing new components. Users of Dymola can easily introduce components that match the user’s own and unique needs. This can be done either from scratch or by using existing components as templates. The open and flexible structure makes Dymola an excellent tool to simulate new or alternative designs and technologies. Dymola is based on Modelica®, which is an object-oriented language for physical modeling developed by the Modelica Association.
Dymola offers a broad variety of interoperability options. Profit from the full support of the FMI standard or use the Simulink interface. By combining the multi-domain modeling strengths of Dymola with the computational power of Simulia products as Abaqus, or iSight you will get faster simulations at a higher level of detail. An example of Dymola and Abaqus co-simulation of a high fidelity anti-lock brake system is presented in a from the Modelica Conference 2009 (download brochure below).
Dymola has unique and outstanding performance for solving differential algebraic equations (DAE). The key to high performance and robustness is symbolic manipulation which also handles algebraic loop and reduced degrees-of-freedom caused by constraints. These techniques together with special numerical solvers enable real-time Hardware-in-the-Loop Simulations (HILS).
