Abstract:

This research accomplished four major goals related to tools for design, validation, and operation of future electric ship systems 1 it developed multi-rate simulation in arbitrary mixed execution environments including tools to optimally configure bi-rate simulation models while considering step size and simulation stability, 2 it developed a new solver that exploits both latency methods and discrete event methods, 3 it developed and demonstrated methods for deeply integrating mature commercial simulation software into the VTB framework, and 4 it developed methods to support robust execution of simulations in a distributed computing environment and demonstrated the approach on digital signal processor DSP and field programmable gate array FPGA systems, and 5 it explored methods to account for the effect on system performance of the coupled networked flows of power and information.
