Sweden-based Solvina has selected Dassault Systemes’ Dymola modeling and simulation solution to optimize the development of effective control strategies for plant productivity and energy usage.

Solvina needs energy optimization as badly configured control systems can lead to production inefficiency and excessive energy consumption.

The company leverages the simulation solution by Dassault Systemes to evaluate and adapt control solutions by simulation before implementation.

Dymola enables simulating dynamic and complex interactions between mechanical, electrical, thermodynamic, hydraulic and control systems among others.

Dymola lets users create their own models and alter existing models.

Solvina project and systems engineer Veronica Olesen said Dymola’s top-down approach enables the company to represent the plant with few components and this makes it possible to test different control strategies quickly.
