Siemens Partners with Modelon
OPTIMICA is an advanced Modelica-based mathematical engine on the market, built to natively support the Modelica and FMI open standards.
December 7, 2018
Siemens Simcenter Amesim will use Modelon’s OPTIMICA Compiler Toolkit as its Modelica engine in the upcoming Simcenter Amesim 17 release.
OPTIMICA is an advanced Modelica-based mathematical engine, built to natively support the Modelica and FMI open standards. It offers an API, native open-standards compliance and a broad range of solvers capable of transient, steady-state and dynamic optimization. OPTIMICA is the calculation engine behind commercial system simulation platforms.
The partnership between Modelon and Siemens will allow Simcenter users to use develop, reuse and integrate Modelica libraries with Simcenter Amesim native libraries for dynamic multiphysics systems modeling. As a result, Simcenter Amesim 17 will fully support the Modelica standard, benefit from optimized code generated by OPTIMICA and continue use of the Simcenter Amesim solver for simulation while remaining compatible with all Simcenter Amesim platform capabilities. Additionally, support of Modelon industrial libraries will come in future Simcenter releases.
“We’re thrilled to start this journey with Siemens, and to see the continued success of our Modelon Inside strategy, which allows integration of Modelon technology into third-party software platforms,” says Magnus Gäfvert, CEO at Modelon. “With OPTIMICA as the Modelica engine of Simcenter Amesim, we’re confident Simcenter Amesim users will experience more flexibility and an overall improvement in their design and simulation processes.”
