Presentation at SPCI 2016

Tomas Eriksson and Peter Lingman are holding presentations about gamification and control of steam nets at Control Systems Conference 2016:

Gaming in web based dynamic simulator

Experience from More Than 10 Years of Work with Steamnet Control in Different Environments


Gamification at LTU

Optimation develops a web-based gaming platform for education and learning together with LTU, Softronic AB, and PiiA. The goal is that students in the course of cellulose and paper engineering at LTU will use dynamic simulations of fiber and paper production as part of the education. The project will be implemented in the cloud-based simulation platform Everysim® together with Optimations Dymola Library Visa2.


Operational analysis of the ore delivery system Boliden Aitik

Optimation participates in an operational analysis of the ore delivery system in Boliden Aitik. The analysis aims at evaluating alternative production scenarios and create a basis for new investments. Optimation contributes with its proprietary simulation software for yearly simulations of production systems.

Design of district heating systems

Optimation participates in a project that aims to introduce demand response when managing large district heating networks. Our role in the project is dynamic modeling of large district heating networks (> 10,000 centers) and the control of these. Other partners in the project are Luleå Energi, Luleå University of Technology, SAMPOL, TWT AG, Athens University and IBM.

Operation analysis LKAB

Together with LKAB in Kiruna, we continue to develop a simulator for operational analysis (OEE analysis). After this upgrade, all seven plants in Kiruna will be implemented in Optimations proprietary simulation platform for operational analysis. The tool is used by LKAB to evaluate the effects of process changes such as availability, maintenance, control strategy and production speed.
