NetSim™ Basic provides accurate control simulation for Woodward’ high-end hardware platforms. The GAP™ code is compiled for simulation or for the target hardware in an identical manner. NetSim Basic ensures the preservation of the dynamic performance from NetSim Basic to the actual target hardware.
Supported hardware platforms include:
- Future platforms
The NetSim Basic environment allows execution of the control software only. No I/O is supported.
NetSim Basic provides an ideal training tool for personnel who are learning GAP, wanting to test open loop functionality of a group of GAP blocks, or wanting to verify communication to a human–machine interface (HMI). A NetSim Basic training simulator, coupled with the actual HMI software on a separate PC, provides an excellent platform to train operators on unit start-up, shutdown, load transients and simulated equipment failures. Operators gain experience with the control and HMI so that they know how to respond when it really counts.
