Meeting customers evolving simulation needs – engineering environment that can swiftly adapt to customers varied simulation needs.
Tokyo, November 2020 – Omega Simulation Co Ltd, a subsidiary of Yokogawa Electric Corporation, has announced the release of OmegaLand V3.4, an enhanced version of the OmegaLand integrated dynamic simulation environment. This core element of Omega Simulation’s plant training simulator provides realistic simulation, and an engineering environment that can swiftly adapt to customers’ varied simulation needs.
In line with advances in digital technology, companies are looking to rapidly streamline and improve the efficiency of plant operations by making greater use of digital data and linking systems. Given such trends and the need for enhanced system connectivity and the streamlined modelling of ever more complex plants, interest is growing in the field of plant dynamic simulation, typified by the use of tools such as digital twins. In addition, the proactive introduction of digital technology has given rise to the need for dynamic simulators that can be used not just for training, but also to achieve more efficient and stable plant operations by leveraging simulation technology to investigate and analyse process behaviours to improve the control of their plant facilities, as well as provide operational assistance during actual operations.
1. Quick construction of simulation environments to swiftly meet increasingly complex needs
Virtual reality (VR) simulation environments that use 3D data are highly realistic, but building them requires a great deal of engineering time and effort. By using panoramic images captured with a 360-degree camera, OmegaLand V3.4 is able to significantly reduce the time and effort needed to create such environments, and the end result is highly realistic. With its enhanced graphic design and modelling-related functions, engineering efficiency is also improved. In increasingly complex plants, these functions can be used to quickly build a simulator that flexibly and quickly meet the varied needs of operators, engineers, and other personnel as well as requirements in such areas as operational assistance and process analysis.
2. Enhanced connectivity through the support of different operating systems
By utilising plant control, equipment, production management, and other kinds of data, and linking with other systems, simulators are able to build environments that are very close approximations of actual environments. With its compatibility with devices and applications running under both 64- and 32-bit operating systems, OmegaLand V3.4 is able to build high-precision simulation environments even in cases where there is great complexity in the linkage of plant systems.
