System Simulation with Ansys Twin Builder
From Functional Principle to Simulation
From the initial functional idea and schematic sketch to the simulation of your entire product with a system model
With system simulation, even complex relationships can be simulated across the boundaries of physical domains. But what is the best way to start? Where do you define the limits of the system? And above all: How can the results be validated? In this seminar, you will learn how to ...

With system simulation, even complex relationships can be simulated across the boundaries of physical domains. But what is the best way to start? Where do you define the limits of the system? And above all: How can the results be validated? In this seminar, you will learn how to create a system model based on a schematic sketch and how to extend it step by step in detail and scope. In addition to the theoretical background and the implementation in Ansys Twin Builder, we also cover the use of the Modelica environment and the extensive user-specific library. Suitable practical examples will help you to consolidate and apply your new knowledge.
The content of the course is aimed both at system managers and engineers who need to understand and calculate mechanical, fluidic, thermal or electrical performance.
After this training you will be able to model and simulate complex systems and validate the results. You will be familiar with Ansys Twin Builder and the Modelica environment and know how to incorporate simulation and test results as well as freely usable elements of the Modelica library into your system model.
