Updates in MapleSim 2015 include the ability for engineers to search their models to reference and look up parameters, additional tools for simulating state of health and support for new battery chemistries. The latest addition to the MapleSim family of products is the MapleSim Server, which allows solutions to be deployed directly to other engineers over the web.

MapleSim 2015 includes powerful new tools that help engineers manage large models efficiently

The MapleSim Server saves organizations both time and money by providing a mechanism that allows the organization to take the engineering solution developed in MapleSim and deploy it directly to other engineers over the web.

Maplesoft™ today announced the release of MapleSim™ 2015 and the latest member of the MapleSim family of products, MapleSim Server. MapleSim is an advanced system-level modeling and simulation platform from Maplesoft, and the MapleSim Server is a new product that allows engineers to explore MapleSim simulation models from a web browser.

MapleSim offers a modern approach to physical modeling and simulation, dramatically reducing model development and analysis time while producing fast, high-fidelity simulations. MapleSim supports the creation of easy-to-use interactive applications that allow engineers to access, analyze, and explore simulation models. With the MapleSim Server, these applications can then be shared with other engineers in the organization, even if they do not have MapleSim. Using only a standard web browser, engineers can perform a wide variety of tasks, including changing parameters, manipulating model equations, running new simulations, and viewing updated results. By using the MapleSim Server, organizations can easily make these solutions available to more people while fully controlling access and eliminating version control problems.

“Solution deployment is a critical piece of the engineering process in any organization, and one that frequently causes logistical headaches unrelated to the actual solution of the engineering problem,” says Paul Goossens, Vice President of Application Engineering at Maplesoft. “The MapleSim Server saves organizations both time and money by providing a mechanism that allows the organization to take the engineering solution developed in MapleSim and deploy it directly to other engineers over the web. This makes the solution available quickly, and avoids the complications that come from having to convert a solution to another tool, pass around individual files which get out of date, or buy additional software for every single engineer who might need it.”

The MapleSim Server is part of the MapleSim 2015 family of products. MapleSim itself has also been enhanced to include powerful new tools that help engineers manage large models efficiently. Engineers can now search their model to determine which components reference a particular parameter, find all occurrences of a particular component or component type, and see exactly where a lookup table is used in a model. MapleSim 2015 also generates help pages automatically from custom components in a shared library, simplifies the updating of common properties shared by multiple components, and supports Modelica Standard Library 3.2.1, the latest official release of this international standard.

The entire family of MapleSim products, including connector products for FMI and Simulink®, the MapleSim Control Design Toolbox, and specialized component libraries, have been updated to take advantage of MapleSim 2015. In addition, the MapleSim Connector for FMI was enhanced to ensure an even smoother transfer of simulation models between modeling tools, and the MapleSim Battery Library has been expanded to provide increased modeling abilities, including additional tools for simulating state of health and support for new battery chemistries. MapleSim 2015 is available in both English and Japanese.
