Optimize Your Control Strategies With the Virtual Engineering Lab

Simulation-based digital twins produce accurate representations of the machine’s behavior and performance. Those digital twins - e.g. created with Altair® Activate® or DSHplus - can be used for validation of control code if they can be calculated and visualized in real-time. Fluidon’s virtual engineering lab (VEL) implements digital twins via functional mock-up interface, calculates and visualizes them in real-time and connects to any controller hardware used for control code development. By linking digital twins with the control code, the VEL contributes to a holistic system understanding. This webinar uses the example of an excavator to show how a simulation-based digital twin can be created and implemented in the VEL. Then in the next step the control algorithm for a bucket grading operation is developed and tested – all before the excavator goes into service. Presenter: Dr. Torsten Verkoyen | Managing Partner, Fluidon Featuring DSHplus by Fluidon, available through the Altair Partner Alliance.

Simulation of Cavitating Flows and Gas Bubble Transport with DSHplus

The occurrence of cavitation negatively affects the performance of hydraulic systems. The impairments range from increased noise levels to severe and life-limiting wear of machine parts. Cavitation in hydraulic systems can be prevented by early integration of one-dimensional fluid power simulation software into the design process. In this webinar, FLUIDON’s piping expert “RohrLEx” explains how cavitating flows can be simulated with the updated component models of DSHplus. The improved models enable the user to analyze all relevant types of cavitation – vapor cavitation, gas cavitation and pseudo-cavitation – as well as the associated phenomenon of gas bubble transport. To illustrate the workflow when simulating a cavitation-endangered and/or gas conveying system with DSHplus, two exemplary cases are presented and discussed.

Model-Based Development with Altair - Introduction and E-Mobility Use Cases Systems Simulation

Presentation by Andy Dyer, Senior Tech Specialist at Altair.

In this presentation, we'll take a look at a few examples of e-Mobility systems models built with Altair Activate and Compose and integrated with other tools like Flux, for electromagnetic simulation for electrical machines (motor/generators), for the purpose of simulating power electronics and motor thermal behavior. We'll also take a look at integrating system model via third-party software like CarSim via the use of the Functional Mock-up Interface, which opens the door to a multitude of tools for further system integration, including packages like MapleSim and DSHplus in the Altair Partner Alliance.

How to Feed Simulation Models with SmartWorks

Presentation by Oliver Breuer, Head of Software Engineering at FLUIDON.

There is a life for simulation models beyond the development process. Despite the large amount of data that can be collected from industrial facilities, the real benefit is behind colorful graphics and charts. To get there, the data provided by the connected components of an IoT capable system has to be analysed and put into context. So, the question is not what can be done with all the collected data but how to generate useful information. Using a simulation model in automated analysis allows estimating the condition of a subsystem or component, even though it is not directly monitored by dedicated sensors. Models created with DSHplus by FLUIDON (APA) can be exported to run as processing modules within IoT Platforms such as SmartWorks by Altair. They can be conditioned with the collected data and put it into the context of system behavior in order to make concrete statements about the current state of the system and its components. These digital twins turn the previous service life of simulation models into a closed cycle that includes product development, commissioning and operation and starts again when revisions and new developments are made on the basis of the existing system.
