Newswire & Press Release / Omega Simulation Launches New Version of OmegaLand Integrated Environment for Dynamic Simulation – Engineering / Artificial Intelligence – Yokogawa Electric Corporation
Omega Simulation Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Yokogawa Electric Corporation, announces the current release of OmegaLand V3.5, an integrated environment for dynamic simulation that plays a central role in the use of operations training simulators power plants and digital twins. This new version of OmegaLand includes completely new functionality as well as improvements to existing functions.
As awareness of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) increases, there is a growing demand for solutions that will optimize energy consumption, reduce CO2 emissions and improve profitability. The need to transfer the techniques and technical skills of highly experienced operators to younger staff is a global concern, and this is particularly acute with very difficult tasks which can result in significant financial losses of millions or tens of millions of people. dollars, like starting a factory. and shutdown, and response to problems and emergencies.
In addition to conventional operator training systems, interest is growing in using digital twins as a way to solve factory problems, recreating a physical factory in a digital space and connecting an actual factory to that digital factory. in real time. In this digital space, a digital twin is able to visualize a range of phenomena. This helps confirm data on process variables such as temperature, pressure, flow rate, and composition that may previously have been inaccessible, and it can help stabilize and streamline plant operations. In order to ensure that a digital twin makes its full contribution to this title, the simulation must accurately reproduce the real situation. In addition to these requirements, these solutions must have user interfaces that support multiple languages and provide training environments that are easy to use and allow multiple people to simultaneously access the same simulation.
1. New OmegaLand Trainer Enterprise package
The OmegaLand Trainer Enterprise package includes a network function that allows the same system configuration used in simulators for education and training to be distributed, eliminating the need for adjustments on individual PCs. Multiple people can now share the same system configuration, allowing them to work together to troubleshoot issues. In addition, the network function facilitates the task of upgrading this software. With this feature, applications installed on individual client PCs are automatically upgraded whenever the application on the server is upgraded.
2. Support for Russian, Chinese, Korean and French
In addition to Japanese and English, OmegaLand now supports simulation graphics in Russian, Chinese, Korean and French, allowing operators to perform monitoring and operations in their own language.
3. Improved replication of plant behaviors
While retaining the functionality that allows users to freely and intuitively create panoramic and highly realistic simulations using images captured with a 360-degree camera, the plant models created using OmegaLand V3.5 now offer an even more precise replication of plant behavior. For example, with installations such as distillation column units and condensing units, the models now more accurately replicate the actual work done with fluids by introducing factors such as water leaks and leaks. pump efficiency * of centrifugal pumps. In addition, additional calculation methods increase the degree of freedom in adjusting the physical characteristics of water, allowing more realistic replications of real phenomena.
* Pump efficiency is calculated by dividing motor energy by actual pump power. The larger the diameter of the pump, the higher the efficiency.
Main target markets
Oil and gas, refining, petrochemicals, chemicals, electric power, water treatment and beverages
• Process learning and plant operation training simulators for operators and engineers;
• Support of plant operations by enhancing plant visualization with a digital twin;
• Verification and analysis of processes, verification and examination of the instrumentation system.
Since its initial release in 2000, the OmegaLand Integrated Environment for Dynamic Simulation has been highly regarded as a simulator capable of faithfully reproducing plants based on actual plant processes, and is used by companies around the world. Omega Simulation already offers the OmegaLand Trainer Factory Operation Training Package and the OmegaLand Educator Process Engineering Learning Package, both based on the OmegaLand Visual Modeler Dynamic Factory Simulator. These will now be supplemented by this version of the OmegaLand Trainer Enterprise package.
