Simulation software developed by engineers for young engineering talents

Be it for research purposes or for comprehensible teaching of physical-technical correlations as part of the academic education: SimulationX supports research projects and is easy to integrate in your educational workflow. With ESI ITI’s proven simulation software, you are able to enhance the quality of your seminars and your research, while preparing your students for their future jobs. Students learn gradually how to develop their own simulation models. With the help of the modeling language Modelica®, they are able to develop new library elements and extend existing ones. A comprehensive documentation describes the behavior for each library element. The simulation environment includes analysis methods which help obtain reliable results and correct interpretations. ESI ITI supports lecturers and tutors with the implementation of the software into their lectures and seminars and also helps with technical questions.
