Is a 1D simulation environment, to analyse and optimise hydraulic and pneumatic systems and components.

Simulation, analysis and optimization of fluid power systems

DSHplus_Workbench.gifDSHplus is a simulation environment specialized on the dynamic non-linear calculation of complex hydraulic and pneumatic systems and components. In particular DSHplus is used for verification of system function, for analysis of the system dynamics, for system revisions, for component selection and design, in the fault diagnosis and for training purposes.

For the analysis and optimization of the system or component DSHplus offers users a specialized fluid power integrated CAE solution. Many libraries are available for the realistic depiction of hydraulic and pneumatic systems. To automate the simulation DSHplus provides various pre- and post-processing modules.

DSHplus also has numerous interfaces and add-ins to integrate with almost any development environment. Open technology standards such as FMI or DSHplus-STC guarantee a cross-application access to external simulation programs, e.g. via co-simulation. For the virtual commissioning of plant and machinery DSHplus-PLCI allows communication with PLC controllers.

Current Release

DSHplus_Version_39_300.pngDSHplus Version 3.9.2 offers many new features and enhancements such as an improved user interface, enhanced program functions and extensive component library, additional interfaces, e.g. the support of the Functional Mock-up Interface (FMI).

The new user interface of DSHplus 3.9.2 includes the ability to describe parameters and initial values of state variables as a function of other parameters and variables. Parameter dialogues with graphical display of look-up tables; the lookup-table list depends on the dimension used in the component, and simplified management of parameters favourites make it easier for the user to build and to check the model. Among other new features, the user interface of DSHplus 3.9 offers an updated Help for the program and the library.

The Library of DSHplus 3.9.2 has been enhanced by a new physically based pneumatic line model as a multi mass oscillator as well as several new components (transition curve, event rate, LS valve, etc.). In addition, a direct access onto the power loss in hydraulic valves and other components is now possible.

The program itself also includes numerous improvements, such as an extended look-up table visualizer for the creation and display of complex maps, and the calculation of the signal coherence in the Bode plot calculation.

On the part of the interfaces the support of the Functional Mock-up Interface (FMI) has been expanded. On the part of the interfaces, the support of the Functional Mock-up Interface (FMI) has been extended. For co-simulation and model exchange are alongside the existing 32bit versions are now 64bit versions also available.
