ANSYS Leverages Modelon Technology for Simulation-Based Digital Twins
Modelon Libraries Now Available in ANSYS App Store
Modelon is pleased to announce new Modelon-powered capabilities in ANSYS® Twin Builder™, part of the recently released ANSYS 19.1 software. Modelon’s industry-leading heating and cooling libraries are now available for purchase directly through the ANSYS App Store, providing users with a one-stop-shop to easily purchase and install these features, making it faster and easier to build digital twins. This announcement is consistent with Modelon’s Multi-Platform strategy, intended to provide broad access to Modelon’s Modelica and FMI compliant technologies to system simulation engineers worldwide. Today, Modelon’s open-standards based technology is available on several industry recognized platforms, including Twin Builder.
“We are excited about our expanded partnership with ANSYS to provide Modelon’s class leading libraries in ANSYS Twin Builder,” said David Higbie, Modelon Chief Commercial Officer. “Twin Builder enables engineers to build, validate and deploy simulation models of physical products – a perfect fit to leverage Modelon’s technology leadership in modeling and simulation.”
The Modelon libraries available in Twin Builder are part of the Modelon Library Suite, a comprehensive set of modeling libraries built on the Modelica standard. The Modelon Library Suite is used by engineers worldwide to model complex technical systems across a range of industries including automotive, aerospace, industrial equipment, and energy and process. Modelon libraries are developed and updated in close cooperation with industry partners to reflect evolving industry needs.
“By combining the power of ANSYS Twin Builder and the best-in-class libraries from Modelica, we are delivering our customers unparalleled design capabilities,” said Sameer Kher, Director, Product Development, Systems Business Unit. “This combination provides our customers with support for creating and simulating a rich collection of Modelica models that span numerous engineering disciplines and applications.”
ANSYS Twin Builder is the only product that offers a packaged approach for digital twins — enabling engineers to quickly build, validate and deploy these digital representations of physical products. The open solution integrates with any IIoT platform and contains runtime deployment capabilities for constant monitoring of every individualized asset used during operation. The combination of industrial asset connectivity with holistic system simulation, powered by ANSYS Twin Builder, empowers customers to perform diagnostics and troubleshooting, determine the ideal maintenance programs, optimize the performance of each asset and generate insightful data to improve the next generation of the products.
