EcosimPro and PROOSIS simulation tools


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 acausal 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 2014: Attendance to the 28th Symposium on Fusion Technology (SOFT) in San Sebastian (Spain)

On 29 September 2014, the 28th annual International Symposium on Fusion Technology took place in San Sebastian (Spain). It brought together a large number of scientists specialized in the various areas required to tackle the challenges of creating a cheap, clean and safe energy that is fusion. Researchers from around the world gathered to present and discuss their latest advances in designing nuclear fusion experiments and on the technologies required to build this type of equipment.

The Test Blanket Systems (TBS) modeling work, for which a set of EcosimPro simulation libraries were developed, was presented during this important encounter. The characteristics of the modeled system, the details of the model finally used and the results of the various simulations were explained in details to a good number of attendees who expressed their interest in the matter.

October 2014: New articles by EcosimPro/ESPSS users now on the web

Multiple space propulsion works performed by different European engineering companies using the EcosimPro/ESPSS platform were presented at the European Space Propulsion Conference held last May in Cologne. A selection of these papers is now available here. They demonstrate the variety and complexity of the projects being used.
