American Modelica Conference

Modelon will be attending and presenting at the American Modelica Conference taking place on October 26–28th at the University of Texas in Dallas.

The Modelica Conference is the main event for users, library developers, tool vendors, and language designers to share their knowledge and learn about the latest scientific and industrial progress related to ModelicaFMISSPeFMI, and DCP. The program will cover the modeling of complex physical and cyber-physical systems, as well as tools, for a wide range of research and industrial applications. In addition to paper presentations, the conference features several Modelica tutorials for beginners and advanced users, as well as industrial user presentations, vendor sessions, and an exhibition.

Technical Papers

Modelon will be presenting three technical papers:

  • Material Production Process Modeling with Automated Modelica Models From IBM Rational Rhapsody
    • Presented by: John Batteh and Jesse Gohl
  • Multi-rotor Drone Sizing and Trajectory Optimization Within Modelon Impact
    • Presented by: Clément Coïc, Marc Budinger, and Scott Delbecq
  • Guidelines and Use Cases For Power Systems Dynamic Modeling and Model Verification Using Modelica
    • Presented by: Giuseppe Laera and  Hubertus Tummescheit
    • Written by: Giuseppe Laera, Luigi Vanfretti, Marcelo de Castro Fernandes, Sergio Dorado-Rojas, Fernando Fachini, Chetan Mishra, Kevin D. Jones, R. Matthew Gardner, Hubertus Tummescheit, Stéphane Velut and Ricardo J. Galarza


There will be two tutorials for Modelon Impact at the American Modelica Conference:

  • Introduction to Modelica with Modelon Impact
    • Presented by: Hubertus Tummescheit, John Batteh from Modelon
    • This workshop will give an introduction to Modelica with a focus on model users. We present the principles of modeling with Modelica and efficient use of model libraries using various
      multi-domain examples selected to make the workshop attractive for engineers from all branches of engineering. Simulations will be run on Modelon’s cloud-native Modelica platform, Modelon Impact. The workshop is planned to take 4 hours, with a break in the middle.
  • Introduction to Modelica and Thermo-fluid Modeling with Applications from the Buildings Library
    • Presented by: David Blum from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
    • This workshop will give an introduction to the modeling of thermo-fluid systems and their control using Modelon Impact and the Modelica Buildings Library. We will be using applications from the Modelica Buildings Library, but the course will be structured to also appeal to modelers from other application domains that are concerned with thermo-fluid systems. After an introductory presentation that discusses the scope of the Modelica Buildings Library, we discuss best practices in setting up thermo-fluid flow models and how to avoid potential problems. In hands-on exercises, participants will build models of simple heating and air conditioning systems, link them to a thermal load, and add feedback control. The models will be built using components from the Modelica Buildings Library. Simulations will be run on Modelon Impact.
