Simulation & Modelling

for complex projects

Understanding correlations and finding optimal solutions

In the development and optimization of technical systems, a profound understanding of the fundamental principles and correlations is necessary to find the optimum solutions. We facilitate an integrated approach by offering our services for in-depth analysis, analytical modelling, and computer-aided simulation. We work on projects in a wide variety of areas (such as complex electromagnetic systems, ship dynamics, or even an entire network of diverse industrial plants) and can draw on many years of experience in modelling and simulation.

Analyzing data and identifying dynamic phenomena

Engineer from TCCT analyses a diagram on a laptop with simulation of measurement data

  • Processing and analysis of measurement data (in the time domain, the frequency domain, and statistically)

  • Setting up systems of equations representing physical phenomena

  • Creating principle models

Examples: Interaction between a vehicle and its respective track system, behaviour of a ship at sea, behaviour of a cross-industry plant network

Modelling and simulation

Engineers discuss a complex simulation model displayed in the background

  • Creation of detailed simulation models of mechanical, electrical, magnetic, thermodynamic subsystems

  • Coupling of subsystems to composite models – classically or by means of co-simulation

  • Analysis of motion behavior and dynamic state progressions

  • Prediction of expected dynamics

Examples: Determination of ride comfort or energy consumption, compliance with actuation limits, vibration analysis, etc.

Developing and dimensioning of control algorithms

Tablet computer being hold, displaying simulation of a control algorithm including key figures

  • Design of hierarchical control concepts

  • Analysis of linear and nonlinear controllers

  • Development of Model Predictive Control

Examples: Magnetic levitation and guidance function of the Transrapid train, control of a complex network of plants from different industries, linear motor control, and many more

Rapid Control Prototyping

Engineer fitting small, electronic hardware components in the lab

  • Autocoding of the developed control algorithms and/or the simulation models

  • Construction of interfaces in hardware

  • Specification of series hardware

Examples: Hardware-in-the-loop operation of individual components in our laboratory, test operation of the developed control algorithms on board a ship

Testing and validation

Screen showing measurement data diagrams, mobile phone in front of it shows video of a test drive

  • Specification and execution of measurement campaigns

  • Evaluation of measurement data in comparison with simulation data

  • Validation of simulation models and controllers

Examples: Maglev train Transrapid on the test facility in Emsland, sea trials, test runs of motor vehicles, etc.
