Abstract

This paper proposes an agent-based composable simulation framework to address the challenges of integration, composability, distributed coordination, and interaction for the development of a virtual prototype of fluid power system. The approach proposed represents each virtual hydraulic component by a domain agent (DA). The agents are then gathered into a multi-agent system, which models the hydraulic system as a whole. The virtual prototyping evaluation depends on the communication and collaboration of multiple agents. A case study shows that agent-based composable simulation can predict the overall system performance. A prototype implementation of the proposed system is presented in this paper.
