Date: September 25, 2020.

The following free online workshop will be offered in conjunction with the American Modelica Conference:

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

    Time: September 25th 8:00 am - 12:00 noon, Mountain Daylight time (UTC -6), 4 hours

    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, see

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