MapleSim 7 Simplifies Library Management and Design Validation

Maplesoft’s latest release for system-level simulation & modeling.

Maplesoft has announced the latest release of their system-level modelling and simulation software, MapleSim 7. The latest update aims to simplify design validation, design exploration, library management, and the sharing of models using the Functional Mockup Interface (FMI).

The results manager released in MapleSim 7 is designed to increase the user’s flexibility while assessing simulation results and model designs. The results manager simplifies the process of comparing simulation results from multiple runs and models. Engineers can also plot the behaviour of the system based on a variable, even if there wasn’t a probe included during the simulation. Additionally, the results manager improves the visualization of the connection between 2D plots and 3D models.

MapleSim 7 also improves its FMI connector. The tool connects to industry standard FMI model definitions allowing for easier sharing of knowledge between CAE tools. Essentially, the MapleSim Connector allows for more export options to account for co-simulation and model exchange.

“MapleSim allows engineers to reduce their development time and develop better designs, whether on their own or working with experts in the Maplesoft Engineering Solutions group,” said Dr. Laurent Bernardin, Ex. VP at Maplesoft. “With MapleSim 7, our customers will benefit from the new tools that help them analyze their models and improve their designs, while the enhanced support for FMI means even more integration options between MapleSim and the rest of their toolchain.”

With the new release, users should also find it easier to manage, create and share model libraries within MapleSim 7. These models will have expanded support for Modelica too, offering more Modelica definitions within MapleSim.

Finally, for users looking to improve their power systems component library MapleSim 7 will have access to a new Battery Library add-on. Once the library is added, physics based predictive models for battery cells can be imported into your multi-domain models to help produce more accurate simulations.
