This paper describes the methodology of generating simulation models out of basic information, available during conceptual design phase. The implementation of an aircraft system is shown as an example using the simulation software HOPSAN.
Because of the limited direct project-related data available at the conceptual stage, the traditional method of creating physical simulation models by the bottom up approach with the help of (standard) component libraries is not applicable. Instead, the respective systems’ architecture as well as their composition has to be descriptively predefined in a flexible, wide-range applicable manner, known as the knowledge base (KB) approach. These system technology driven design declarations – combined with project related data – result in roughly pre-tuned system simulation models, which may help when conducting more detailed investigations of the project such as performance analysis.
This (system architecture) knowledge-based approach is shown on the whole aircraft system level down to the detailed implementation of the control surface actuator systems of the primary flight control system.
