Modeling mechtronic systems using the SIDOPS+ language

  title={Modeling mechtronic systems using the SIDOPS+ language},
  author={Arno Breunese and Jan F. Broenink},
Automated modeling is a field of research that is subject to considerable evolution. Both the increase in available computer power and better insight in the modeling and design process lead to a stream of new opportunities for automated modeling support. To make this support possible, a language is needed that forms the medium for the exchange of information between the computer and the user. In this paper, we propose the SIDOPS+ model description language that not only covers state of the art…

Modelica—The next generation modeling language, an international effort

A new language called Modelica for physical modeling is developed in an international effort to make it easy to exchange models and model libraries and to unify the concepts and design a new uniform language for model representation.

Equation-Based Object-Oriented Languages and Tools

Researchers with diverse backgrounds and needs came together to present and discuss fourteen different concept papers grouped into the four topic areas of integrated system modeling approaches; modeling for multiple applications; modeling language design, and equation handling, diagnosis, and modeling.

Grant Agreement: 644047 INtegrated TOol chain for model-based design of CPSs Design Principles for Code Generators

The high level principles of the code generators which will be developed as part of the INTO-CPS project are described, each of the tools Overture, 20-sim and OpenModelica will be extended with code generation capabilities from their respective modelling notations.

Formal Aspects of Component Software: 16th International Conference, FACS 2019, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, October 23–25, 2019, Proceedings

This paper presents three modeling guidelines based on experience of modeling and synthesizing supervisors of large-scale infrastructural systems that see the model of the plant as a collection of component models and expresses that independent components should be modeled as asynchronous models.

Evolution of Continuous-Time Modeling and Simulation

The paper presents the current status of modeling and simulation and draws on the historical perspective to explain how the field has developed, with particular emphasis on shifts in technology and paradigms.



Automated formula manipulation supports object-oriented continuous-system modeling

It is demonstrated how sophisticated automated formula manipulation can be used to automatically generate state-space models from an object-oriented description of a physical system.


An analysis is presented of techniques which (partially) enable the implementation of powerful decomposition, classification and representation concepts in computer-based modelling tools and examples are shown which demonstrate features of a polymorphic modelling system.

Structure and use of a library for physical systems models

This paper describes how a generic framework for storing and retrieving public and private model data is needed based on a differentiation between three different levels of abstraction, which are defined as engineering components, conceptual descriptions in terms of physical processes, and mathematical relations.


We discuss the development of a new algorithm for simulation of combined systems, that controls the traditional numerical integration process, such that time events and state events are handled

Tasks and ontologies in engineering modelling

The proposed Specify-Construct-Assess (SCA) problem-solving method for decomposition of the modelling task leads to a particular approach to modelling that is called evolutionary modelling, which is supported by a knowledge-based system called QuBA.

Combined continuous/discrete system simulation by use of digital computers: techniques and tools

This chapter discusses the development of the Regula-Falsi Iteration Scheme and some of the techniques used in that scheme, as well as its applications in discrete and continuous simulation.
