Modelica Standard Library🔗

Modelica® is a standardized and free package that is developed together with the Modelica® language from the Modelica Association, see Modelica website. It is also called Modelica Standard Library. It provides model components in many domains that are based on standardized interface definitions.

Modelon Base Library🔗

Modelon Base Library is a commercial and licensed library for use within Modelica® modeling and simulation environments. The Modelon Base Library contains classes that complement the Modelica Standard Library (MSL). The structure of the library largely follows that of MSL. Components that have a corresponding component in MSL are in general modified/improved versions but with the same basic functionality as the MSL version.

  1. Modelon Impact supports installation of multiple versions of a library. Each library comes with a conversion script. A drop-down menu allows us to choose library versions.

  2. Modelon Impact Pro license includes all 16 commercial libraries and 2 component libraries.


If you are missing Modelon libraries within the global libraries Contact Modelon sales confirm that you have the Modelon Impact Pro version that includes the entire Library Suite.

Electrification Library🔗

Modelon's Electrification Library is a multi-physics solution for modeling electrified systems with batteries, electric motors/generators, and power electronic converters/inverters. Applications include electric vehicle powertrains, aircraft propulsion, and energy systems such as microgrids. Typical use cases are analysis and verification of energy efficiency, performance limits, thermal management, control software, and electrical transients.

Heat Exchanger Library🔗

Modelon’s Heat Exchanger Library provides an environment for heat-exchanger design and analysis with interfaces for convenient system model integration. It contains a large number of geometry-based heat exchangers with a focus on compact designs, such as plate and micro-channel types. Both two-phase media such as refrigerants, and single-phase fluids like incompressible liquids, air or pressurized gases are supported.

Hydro Power Library🔗

Modelon’s Hydro Power Library provides a framework for modeling and simulating hydro power plant operations, enabling users to study multiple plant designs and their dynamic behaviors in the early concept design phase.

Liquid Cooling Library🔗

Modelon’s Liquid Cooling Library is used for modeling and simulation of liquid cooling systems for virtual prototyping, component dimensioning and control design. The library includes more than 80 internal flow components such as pipes, bends and junctions with predictive geometry-based flow resistance correlations. It also includes generic components that can be calibrated from measurement data.

Thermal Power Library🔗

Modelon’s Thermal Power Library provides a comprehensive modeling, simulation, and optimization framework for thermal power plant operation, including district heating and microgrid networks.

Vapor Cycle Library🔗

Modelon’s Vapor Cycle Library is used to design vapor cycle systems for heating, cooling and waste-heat recovery. The library enables component interaction and dynamic system behavior to be simulated and analyzed at an early design stage. It can be used as an integrated part of energy management design for both mobile and residential applications.

Air Conditioning Library🔗

Modelon's Air Conditioning Library is used to design, analyze and optimize automotive air conditioning systems during early design stages. It comes with both ready-to-use refrigeration cycle templates and a wide range of components to create non-standard configurations. Predefined steady-state experiments and an interface to Microsoft Excel enable users to conduct experiments to calibrate and validate design options and component settings. A dynamic system model provides the means for investigating charge optimization and control design.

Engine Dynamics Library🔗

Modelon’s Engine Dynamics Library is used for combustion engine systems modeling, simulation and analysis, including engine to intake/exhaust flow paths, intercoolers, turbochargers, and EGR-loops. Pressure and thermal dynamics of the complete air and exhaust gas exchange are explicitly modeled. Several turbocharger and EGR configurations can be modeled, including variable geometry turbine designs. The library is well suited for creating models used in transient engine response and related engine control.

Fuel Cell Library🔗

Modelon’s Fuel Cell Library is used to model, simulate, analyze and control fuel cell design and operation, especially for PEMFC (Polymer Electrolyte Membrane) and SOFC (Solid Oxide) fuel cell systems.

Vehicle Dynamics Library🔗

Modelon's Vehicle Dynamics Library provides an open and user-extensible environment for full vehicle and vehicle subsystem analysis. Designed with a hierarchical structure and an extensive library of predefined vehicle components, the configuration of any class of wheeled vehicle – cars, trucks, motorsport vehicles, heavy vehicles – is convenient and straight-forward.

Aircraft Dynamics Library🔗

Modelon’s Aircraft Dynamics Library is a Modelica-based library for the design and simulation of fixed-wing aircraft and their sub-systems. It provides an open and extensible environment for a wide variety of applications including design and assessment of hybrid electric propulsion concepts, the analysis, and simulation of six degrees of freedom flight dynamics, detailed landing gear design and analysis, and other complex aircraft systems.

Environmental Control Library🔗

Modelon’s Environmental Control Library is a Modelica library for aircraft environmental control systems analysis and design. The library is designed to study energy consumption and thermal conditions that affect the level of comfort for passengers and crew.

Fuel System Library🔗

Modelon’s Fuel System Library is a Modelica library targeting the design and verification of fuel systems on civil and military aircraft. The library is designed to analyze and verify the system behavior during various dynamic operating modes and flight conditions.

Hydraulics Library🔗

Modelon’s Hydraulics Library is valuable for all industries that develop hydraulic components and applications, including automotive, aerospace and industrial equipment. The Hydraulics Library provides models of pumps, motors and cylinders, restrictions and valves, hydraulic lines, lumped volumes and sensors.

Jet Propulsion Library🔗

Modelon’s Jet Propulsion Library provides a foundation for the modeling and simulation of jet engines, including the model-based design of integrated aircraft systems. The jet engine, a key source for power on-board aircraft, couples the opportunity for substantial performance improvements with the challenge of mastering the underlying physics. Modelon’s Jet Propulsion Library offers a comprehensive set of components that empower cycle performance analysis and optimization of all types of aerospace gas turbines.

Pneumatics Library🔗

Modelon’s Pneumatics Library is used to verify and optimize the design of complete pneumatic systems throughout a product lifecycle. Applications include suspension and brake systems, machine tools, heavy-duty pneumatic tools such as jackhammers, impact wrenches and drills.

Industrial equipment🔗

Industrial equipment libraries are included within Modelon Impact Pro version. They do focus on modeling mechanics, thermodynamics, hydraulics and pneumatics applied in the manufacturing machinery, robotics and heavy mobile machinery. For more detailed information click here.
