Accelerating The Simulation Of Electric Ship Simulink Models
Since October 2011, our research focus has been on the investigation of techniques for significant simulation acceleration of the Simulink models (such as MVAC model) developed by other ESRDC members through the use of MSUs High Performance Computing Collaboratorys (HPC2) parallel/distributed computing expertise and cluster resources. Simulink models currently take significant wall-clock time (hours or days) to simulate seconds or minutes of a given ship model. The latest Simulink models were obtained, and work began on running and profiling one of the models (MVAC), both to understand operation of the model and to gain insight into where the time was being spent. Also, based upon some research papers outlining techniques to discover and extract parallelism in a Simulink model, investigation is underway to see if these techniques can be manually applied to the MVAC model, and if so, what the maximum benefit (simulation speed increase) might be.
