Products across range of industry and applications are becoming complex. While detailed 3D simulations can be used to simulate the performance of each individual component, it is critical to understand how the individual components interact with each other as part of a large complex systems. This holds true for a simple water purifier used for domestic use to a wind turbine installed in North Sea. Availability of sensor data and BIG data technologies are also providing huge amount of information on system performance which needs to be carefully evaluated to reduce operating costs and avoid catastrophic shutdowns. ANSYS System Simulation tools make is possible to build responsive models of complex systems and along with the BIG data technologies, companies can build “Digital Twins” which can give meaningful insight into product operation over long term.
ANSYS has solutions across multiple scales and multiple physics. We are uniquely positioned to provide high fidelity models in 3-D physics, embedded software and systems simulation. Users can assemble these different components into complete virtual prototypes of software-controlled, multidomain systems that can be used throughout the whole product lifecycle, from the initial concept to product operation.
Systems simulation provides insight and validation of systems-level characteristics, functions, behaviour and performance. This can be used to understand design choices which goes beyond the design of individual parts and accurately captures the interaction of individual components. This can potentially save significant amount money from testing and validation efforts and more importantly product development time.
ANSYS Simplorer is tightly integrated with ANSYS solutions for 3-D Multiphysics simulation and embedded software design.
