Valmet and Optimation collaborate with simulators

Valmet and Optimation have collaborated with the development of the simulator since 2002. The simulators are mainly used for operator training. Valmet uses the Optimations Modeling Library Visa2 as the base library as well as the communication software DSHM (Distributed Shared Memory).

Visa2 is designed by Optimation and contains models for base components within eg. Power, heat, pulp and paper, as well as mining industry. DSHM is also a proprietary tool which are used to connect and real-time synchronize models with other models or models with control systems.

Visa2 and DSHM are implemented together with Valmet's machine / process-specific models in a number of simulators delivered globally by Valmet with very good results.

Optimation uses Valmet's software Training Manager instructor function. With Training Manager, operator training can be supervised. Training includes simulations scenarios, introduction of interference in the process and reporting of operator results.

Scanmet 2016

Optimation presents a work done with SSAB Europé Luleå at the International Metallurgy Conference SCANMET V. This article describes a regulatory concept for gas recycling from LD converters in Luleå. Simulations have been used throughout the development process from concept to commissioning and education. Operator training was conducted in cloud-based simulations in the Everysim® platform.
