Is the foundation for all modelling and simulation features
found in GPS-X. Simulator permits the simulation of the more than 50
pre-compiled layouts included with GPS-X, and all custom-designed
Automates the task of performing sensitivity analyses on
model parameters in either steady state or dynamic simulations. For
example, you may want to develop an operational chart showing the
extent of nitrification versus the sludge age or temperature.
Use GPS-X's powerful graphical interface to create your own
plant layouts or modify existing process flow diagrams.
Assists you in optimizing your plant operations. For example,
you may want to determine the best air flow distribution in an
activated sludge tank, to optimize effluent quality and minimize
aeration costs. You can also use Optimizer to automate the model
calibration process, where one or more parameters are fine-tuned so
that the predicted and measured data fit more closely.
Continuously updates model calibration with the most recent
plant information. When connected on-line to your plant, parameter
values are tracked to detect changes that give early warning of
sensor malfunction or a potential plant upset.
Automatically extracts all relevant information contained in
a respirogram. A respirogram is a measurement of bacterial activity
in activated sludge under well-defined conditions. This enables you
to more accurately calibrate your plant model.
Control - MATLAB Interface
Combines the speed, power, and sophisticated process models
of GPS-X with the flexibility and controller design capabilities of
Matlab. You have total control over which GPS-X outputs are sent to
Matlab, and which GPS-X variables are controlled by Matlab. This
allows you to concentrate on fine-tuning your controller design,
dramatically improving your productivity.
Designed as a tool for running simulations of specific
pre-defined operational scenarios using a simple intuitive ''VCR''
like interface. Allows your plant staff to quickly make day-to-day
decisions about plant operations using pre-configured GPS-X layouts
and operating scenarios.
Familiar ''VCR-like'' feel of Scenario Manager interface
gives your operators a powerful tool for evaluating various
