In 2014, the Formula 1 technical regulations changed and they introduced a small capacity V6 turbocharged engine with energy recovery systems (ERS). The ERS consists of two electric motor-generators: one is attached to the turbocharger shaft; and the second is attached to the crankshaft. The power rating and energy...
Saab delivers world-leading products, services and solutions for military defence and civil security worldwide. Its Gripen fighter is the first of a new generation, multi-role fighter aircraft that is the most complex and advanced plane Saab has ever built. The fighter is equipped with the latest technology, enabling it...
WMG, formerly Warwick Manufacturing Group at the University of Warwick, is using Dymola modelling technology to help develop the next generation of low carbon vehicles. The programme, part of the £29 million West Midlands-based Low Carbon Vehicle Technology Project (LCVTP), is an advanced research project which will ensure Britain’s...
McLaren Racing, the operating arm of the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Formula 1 team, and Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, are pleased to announce a new partnership to further enhance racing car development efficiency. The agreement sees McLaren...
The complexity of automotive powertrains is increasing. As a result it’s becoming increasingly difficult for engineers to determine the optimum specification for the system. The proliferation of control systems also adds to the complexity of the task and increasingly simulation is being used to assist in the development of...
Abstract: This article is aimed to present Modelica-based simple tic and toc functions and their implementation in Dymola. These functions are created to estimate the total elapsed computer processing unit (CPU) time of repeated model experimentations in Dymola. For this purpose, the getTime() function from Modelica Standard Library (MSL)...
This blog post discusses the fluid connectors based on Modelica.Fluid.Interfaces.FluidPort and the concept of flow and stream variables. Figure 1: Fluid connectors in Modelica Standard Library All the components from Modelica.Fluid can be connected using fluid ports. A flow leaving the connector has a negative sign, while a flow...
This blog post will give the user some simple tips for speeding up the creation of a system model in Dymola. Often in a system model, several objects of the same type are required. Some of these objects might have identical parameterisation (hinges on a door: axis of rotation),...
Written by: Garron Fish – Chief Engineer & Sas Harrison – Systems Engineer Introduction This blog entry describes some of the model translation process, focusing on the symbolic processing that is performed. The symbolic processing of equations is applied to the complete set of equations for the model. This “flat” form of...
Written by: Romain Gillot – Project Engineer The inverseBlockConstraints block can be found in Modelica.Blocks.Math. It allows to invert the input(s) and output(s) of a model whilst maintaining the plant model identical. This is possible because Dymola supports acausal modelling with extensive support of the Modelica language. The symbolic...
