Hardware in the Loop

There are several advantages while including Dymola in the design process:

  • The same models of all the libraries may be used more than once, every time in a different context.
  • Models are created using an object-oriented language. Thus, the user is not forced to convert equations into assignment statements.
  • Dymola intuitive modelling environment allows to design even the most complex model in an easy and precise manner.
  • User-built models may always be re-used at different times and for different tasks. That’s made even easier by the Dymola design environment documentation.
  • 3D animation can be created, even for complex high performance models for xPC® and dSPACE®.
  • Symbolic equations are automatically transformed, without erroneously incur in algebraic loops.
  • Instantaneous or piecewise functions can be used, i.e. friction or impact equations.
  • User can manage the details of every event, during real-time simulation.
  • Dymola is able to manage automatic times and events generation for state machines.
  • All models, both from libraries and user-generated, can easily be exported through FMI (Functional Mock-up Interface) for co-simulations, hardware/software in the loop and simulation aggregators.

Typical industries and activities in which Dymola can be successfully applied:

  • Automotive
  • Control design
  • Industrial Automation and Machinery
  • Mechanics and Compression Systems
  • Real-time systems
  • Simulation
