Enrich your reality

Model.CONNECT™ 2021 R2

Integrating virtual and real components

Model.CONNECT™ is an open model integration and co-simulation platform connecting virtual and real components into one functional prototype. It provides flexibility and cross-compatibility of the simulation tools within AVL’s Integrated and Open Development Platform (IODP).

  • New Python interface component
    • A simple and fast way to develop custom interfaces and tool-couplings based on Python
    • Interface specification inspired by the FMI standard
    • Flexible choice of Python version

 

  • FMI 3.0 beta.4
    • As driving member in the Modelica FMI standardization group, we already implemented first FMI 3.0 support
    • More features can be expected in autumn release

 

  • Performance improvements
    • An additional performance boost of up to 43% for our highly optimized coupling mechanism “parallel fast”
    • Minimum co-simulation overhead with in-process coupling
    • Optimal coupling of models with different time-step sizes

 

  • Connection properties list
    • You can use this list to get a clear overview of all connections in your co-simulation topology
    • Now you can also review and edit the connection properties from there

 

  • Import parameter values from DCM files
    • Import parameter sets for your simulation models from DCM files
    • Integrates perfectly into the virtual calibration workflow with e.g., INCA

 

  • Many fixes and usability improvements
