EcosimPro and PROOSIS are powerful mathematical tools capable of modelling any kind of dynamic system represented by differential-algebraic equations (DAE) or ordinary-differential equations (ODE) and discrete events. They are integrated visual environments that provide intuitive tools for making simulation easy.
The tools provide an object-oriented non-causal approach for creating reusable component libraries and are based on very powerful symbolic and numerical methods capable of processing complex systems of differential-algebraic equations. With theirs clever wizards, they provide modellers with an easy way to build consistent mathematical models.
EcosimPro and PROOSIS are used by leading companies in the Aerospace and Energy sectors. European Space Agency (ESA) has chosen EcosimPro as its recommended tool for simulation in several fields, including propulsion, environmental control systems and life support (ECLSS) and power systems. For the last 15 years, ESA has turned to EcosimPro to model complex systems of the International Space Station (ISS), rocket propulsion and biological systems, among others.
October 2013: Published the paper The Map Fitting Tool Methodology: Gas Turbine Compressor Off-Design Performance Modeling
This paper describes the structure and the implementation of an extended parametric representation of compressor characteristics for a modern object oriented gas turbine performance simulation software (PROOSIS).
1st August 2013: EcosimPro 5.2.0 released!
Today it has been released a new version of EcosimPro. It includes improvements in text editor, find tool, partition wizards, connection to subversion, etc. Clients with up to date maintenance contract will be updated to this new version.
12th July 2013: Newsletter number 8 has been issued
5th April 2013: New ESPSS Workshop
ESA and Empresarios Agrupados are organising a workshop focused on Space Propulsion Systems Simulation with EcosimPro and the ESPSS libraries at ESA-ESTEC (Noordwijk, NL) during May 21-23, 2013. During this workshop the last version of the libraries, ESPSS 3, will be presented. Moreover, some real applications will be presented by industrial and research institutions in order share experience and to discuss the advantages, drawbacks and potential improvements of the tool.
