Graphical programming for Modeling and Simulation 

Xcos is a graphical editor to design hybrid dynamical systems models. We could use the model for simulation as well as the code generation to test the actual physcial systems.


Xcos is a graphical editor to design hybrid dynamical systems models. Models can be designed, loaded, saved, compiled and simulated.

Course Synopsisimage003

Xcos is a graphical editor to design hybrid dynamical systems models. Models can be designed, loaded, saved, compiled and simulated. Stable and efficient solution for industrial and academics needs, Xcos provides functionalities for modeling of mechanical systems (automotive & aeronautics), hydraulic circuits (such as dam and pipe modeling), control systems, signal processing and so on. Xcos is freely available and distributed with Scilab. Xcos environment consists of:

a) Editor - which allows the design of flow charts representing a dynamic system made of blocks defined in palettes.

b) Palette Browser - which lists all Xcos standard blocks grouped by categories (signal processing, electrical, hydraulics, derivative, integral and so on).

c) Compiler / Simulator - Xcos environment allows (from the built model) simulation of complex systems - discrete, continuous, defined by symbolic equations (Modelica) and hybrid systems combining the capabilities above. The data resulting of the simulation can then be graphically viewed in real time, used in Scilab for post processing.  

 

Course Objectives

The aims of the training is to become familiar with Xcos, its GUI, its editor, palette browser and its modeling & simulation capabilities.
