Handling the Complexity of Mechatronic System Design
Two design projects highlight how ABB Group leverages optimization-based development to handle the complexity that automation and control systems entail and to maximize mechatronic product performance, meet reliability demands and ease overall environmental impact.
Multi Objective Optimization of Medium Voltage Reclosers
Medium voltage reclosers are protection devices for medium voltage grid operators which are often integrated into overhead line towers. Finding the right configuration for the components piloting the process is not only crucial in terms of recloser lifetime but also enables excellent switching properties, ultimately improving energy performance.
Numerical Optimization of Analytical Measurement Techniques to Contribute to Improvement of Product Engineering Techniques
Ensuring high product reliability by preventing human error when performing physical and chemical analysis of hardware is key to Fujitsu analytical group. Nanometer level measurement or tools like the low-dose alpha rays detectors are indispensable for demonstrating the high reliability of the company’s products. However, the setup and calibration phases can be very tedious and challenging.
Optimization of a Wildfire Emergency System
This case study analyzes the benefits of integrating modeFRONTIER and exploiting its automation and optimization tools for developing complex systems design and deployment.The System Engineering discipline relies on a series of organized steps and procedures which shape the whole System Engineering Process. The macro-steps composing this process are the "Definition and decomposition" of the problem, the "Implementation" of the software/hardware system and the "Integration and recomposition" - i.e. testing and validation - phase.
