Abstract [en]

Simulation of fluid power systems typically requires models from multiple disciplines.Achieving accurate load dynamics for a system with complex geometry, for example, mayrequire both a 1D model of the hydraulic circuit and a 3D multi-body model. However, mostsimulation tools are limited to a single discipline. A solution to these kinds of problems isco-simulation, where different tools are coupled and simulated together. Co-simulation canprovide increased accuracy, improved modularity and facilitated collaboration between dif-ferent organizations. Unfortunately, tool coupling typically requires tedious and error-pronemanual work. It may also introduce numerical problems. For these reasons, co-simulation isoften avoided as long as possible. These problems have been addressed by the developmentof an open-source framework for asynchronous co-simulation. Simulation tools can be inter-connected through a stand-alone master simulation tool. An extensive range of tools is alsosupported via the Functional Mockup Interface standard. A graphical user interface has beenimplemented in the OpenModelica Connection Editor. System models can be created andedited from both a schematic view and a 3D view. Numerical robustness is enforced by theuse of transmission line modelling. A minimalistic programming interface consisting of onlytwo functions is used. An example model consisting of a hydraulic crane with two arms, twoactuators and a hanging load is used to verify the framework. The composite model consistsof nine multi-body models, one hydraulic system model and a controller. It is shown thatmodels from various simulation tools can be replaced with a minimal amount of user input.
