VEL - Virtual Engineering Lab
The VEL - Virtual Engineering Lab enables the construction and orchestration of real-time capable digital twins, for example for the realisation of demanding control and regulation tasks for hydraulic components and systems.
As a modular, expandable development environment based on open-source toolkits and standardised interface definitions (Functional Mock-up Interface/FMI), it integrates calculations of independent simulation tools via FMUs into an overall model.
The range of applications of the VEL includes the creation of workflows for system analysis and optimisation of the digital twin, for automated analysis of simulation results or of measurement data, including report generation, e.g. as PowerPoint or Excel files, up to coupling the digital twin to fieldbus networks in order to provide control developers with virtual commissioning techniques for SiL and HiL applications.
