Modelon and International Modelica Conference

The 15th International Modelica Conference is organized as an in-person event, held in the city of Aachen, Germany from October 9-11, 2023.

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 ModelicaFMISSP, 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. The previous Modelica conference in 2019 in Regensburg, Germany, was attended by more than 400 participants from all over the world, and we would like to welcome even more participants to this conference.

As contributions to the conference program, Modelon will host a tutorial session and a vendor presentation.

Tutorial Session: Techno-economical assessment of industrial infrastructure – optimal design and control to reach net-zero 

Dynamic optimization based on CasADi has been around for a number of years and the advantages of this dynamic trajectory-based optimization approach are well understood. However, it has always been quite inaccessible and hard to integrate into engineering design workflows. With Modelon Impact, we are introducing a fully integrated solution to enable this exciting and powerful technology.  

In this tutorial, we will showcase advanced workflows of Modelon Impact – Modelon’s cloud-based system simulation platform which is powered by the Optimica Compiler and enables the linking of Modelica with the CasADi dynamic optimization toolchain. Modelon Impact is an easy-to-use tool that provides the ability to not only find the optimal design of your system infrastructure but also deliver the optimal control of the individual components for minimal carbon emissions and cost. Participants will only require a laptop that has either Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge built on Chromium. Time permitting, we will also provide the participants with an opportunity to test the integrated steady-state workflow for rapid sizing of flow components.

Vendor Session: Meet Modelon Impact – a cloud platform for virtually designing, simulating, and analyzing industrial systems. 

What happens when you combine the power of cloud technology with powerful system modeling and simulation? The emergence of cutting-edge MBSE application possibilities for commercial utilization. In this sessionwe’ll walk through real-world examples of how Modelon Impact goes beyond the traditional use of Modelica-based system simulation tools. We’ll also discuss the most recent updates to Modelon’s Modelica libraries, Modelon Impact, as well as what users can expect from the platform and its libraries in the near future.
