Technical article: a comparison of different simulation models downloadweblink

CedratWed, 28 Jan 2015

  In this paper the question will be discussed where and when the expense of a CoSimulation with two established simulation tools such as 1) Matlab/Simulink and 2) FLUX is worthwhile. A linear actuator is used as an example, which is simplified and abstracted from a real part due to confidentiality reasons.
