Location: The workshops will be held at the CU Boulder Center for Academic Success and Engagement, 1725 Euclid Ave, Boulder, CO 80309.

The American Modelica Conference and the workshops have been postponed due to the Corona virus to a yet to be determined date. See modelica.org/events/modelica2020Americas for details.

Date: TBD

The following free workshops will be offered at the American Modelica Conference:

  • Introduction to Modelica with Modelon Impact:

    Time: 08:30 am - 12:30 pm

    Presenters: Hubertus Tummescheit, John Batteh (Modelon)

    Abstract: This workshop will give an introduction to Modelica with a focus on model users. We present the principles of modeling with Modelica and efficient use of model libraries using various multi-domain examples selected to make the workshop attractive for engineers from all branches of engineering. Simulations will be run on Modelon’s cloud-native Modelica platform, Modelon Impact.

    Expected experience: Some familiarity with system simulation.

    Software requirements: Laptop with recent version of either Google Chrome or Opera installed. 8GB of memory is recommended.

  • Thermo-fluid Modeling with Applications from the Buildings Library:

    Time: 1:30 pm - 5:30 pm

    Presenter: Michael Wetter (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory)

    Abstract: This workshop will give an introduction on the modeling of thermo-fluid systems and their control using Modelon’s latest graphical editor. We will be using applications from the Buildings library, but the course will be structured to also appeal to modelers from other application domains that are concerned with thermo-fluid systems. After an introductory presentation that discusses the scope of the Modelica Buildings Library, we discuss best practice in setting up thermofluid flow models and how to avoid potential problems. In hands-on exercises, participants will build models of simple heating and air conditioning systems, link them to a thermal load, and add feedback control. The models will be built using components from the Buildings library. Simulations will be run on Modelon’s cloud-native Modelica platform, Modelon Impact.

    Expected experience: Participants are expected to have either basic knowledge of Modelica, or have attended the Workshop Introduction to Modelica with Modelon Impact.

    Software requirements: Laptop with recent version of either Google Chrome or Opera installed. 8GB of memory is recommended.
