HPC-OpenModelica for Multiscale Simulations of Technical Systems and Applications for the Development of Energy-Efficient Working Machinery (HPC-OM)
The central idea of this project is to use mathematic as well as syntactic context information, taken from sub models, for the development of a total system. This could then be simulated with high parallel efficiency despite its multiscale phenomena.
The challenges the HPC-software is faced with are located in the automatic analysis, the annotation and partitioning of model graphs as well as in the creation of optimized and load balanced HPC-codes. At the same time we are working on high-detail models of subsystems and a robust coupling of HPC and VR-systems. Simulations of construction machines in their employment context are used to test the algorithms, methods, concepts and models, applying high detail models of Bosch-Rexroth-drive train components.
HPC-porting enables us to conduct multi-physical simulations on the level of detail required for the energy optimization within an acceptable time frame. We are further capable of performing real-time for VR-applications. The development of the open-source software OpenModelica guarantees the sustainability of findings through the cooperation of a big research community. The developed technology will be used by the simulation software of Bosch-Rexroth and the ITI GmbH.
