The annual Fluid Power Technology Conference provides fantastic fluid power content to MSOE’s Kern Center each May. This year’s Conference, which is scheduled from May 13-15, once again features three full days of in-depth programming including pre-conference workshops, keynote sessions, industry panels, hands-on technology demonstrations, and networking sessions. And best yet, you can still register for the event here.
Software will be a focus of several of the sessions, including “How cosimulation ensures product reliability and efficiency” presented by Famic Technologies on Tuesday afternoon and “Model-based design to accelerate innovation” presented by FD-Groups America on Wednesday afternoon. Here is some additional information on those two sessions, including the presenters:
Tuesday, May 14
3:15 p.m. to 3:45 p.m.
How cosimulation ensures product reliability and efficiency
Denis Lenoble, Product Manager for Automation Studio
The fluid power industry has much evolved in recent years. Systems being designed now integrate other technologies to provide greater efficiency gains. Companies are looking for intuitive ways to incorporate, test and troubleshoot the electrical and control design with the fluid power systems.
With cosimulation, the software model can interact with the hardware to create a complete machine with its control, as a way to develop and test electro-hydraulic systems. In this presentation, we will show how cosimulation can be used throughout the various step of a product lifecycle.
Wednesday, May 15
1:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Model-based design to accelerate innovation
Céline Cabana, Technical Account Manager
In today’s world, innovative products are tested virtually by multi-domain simulation. The first step is the proof of concepts. With the chosen architecture of the machine, more detailed analysis is performed, up to the release of the actual prototype. To accelerate the development process and validate the decision making, dynamic simulation can virtually assess and optimize the performance of systems.
Through a recent case study on a “Locomotive Speed Control System,” this presentation’s purpose is to explore the methodology used to improve the understanding of the mechatronic assembly, its operation, and to optimize the safety.
