Modeling and simulation for automation and machinery

20-sim is an excellent tool for the design and testing of complex complex machines and systems. Typical applications are:

Example: Feedforward Control

Machine control using feed forward (FF) can enhance the positioning and tracking substantially. The size of the systems is not important. Whether you are working with a micro system or a steel rolling mill, feed forward control offers enormous possibilities. A practical example is a project that was carried out at the Maritime Research Institute Netherlands (Marin). The company Controllab Product B.V. has implemented feed forward control on one of the towing tanks of the Maritime Institute and substantially reduced the tracking error.
