The exchange of models is on the rise due to the creation of the Functional Mockup Interface (FMI) and an increasing number of tools that support the exporting and importing of Functional Mockup Units (FMUs). FMUs for co-simulation provide models as well as associated simulation algorithms. Special master algorithms are required for the coupling of such FMUs. These control the interaction of the individual units such that a valid solution of the overall problem is calculated. This is achieved by loading the individual FMUs involved in the problem and exchanging values (coupling values) between them.
Our software tool “EAS-CoSiMa” offers a large number of such master algorithms and allows them to be conveniently used in the co-simulation. This way, you stay flexible and retain full control of your co-simulation.
