Dymola and Modelica_EmbeddedSystems in Teaching-Experiences from a Project Course

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper, not in proceeding


This contribution presents experiences from a master level project course where a Modelica-based tool, Dymola, supporting embedded control system design has been used. In a recent initiative, the Modelica language has been enhanced to support modeling of embedded systems and code generation targeted at micro processors. Then new specification is sup-ported by, e.g., Dymola and enables wide range of design tasks to be performed in a unified framework. Such tasks include software in the loop simulation to test controller code in simulation, hardware in the loop simulation, and final deployment on the target. In the context of teaching, the new features of Mod-elica/Dymola enable universities to offer a realistic environment providing students with hands on expe-riences from model-based control system development.
