Omega Simulation Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Yokogawa Electric Corporation, announced the release of OmegaLand V3.5, an integrated environment for dynamic simulation that plays a role in the use of plant operation training simulators and digital twins. This new version of OmegaLand includes entirely new features as well as enhancements to existing functions.
New OmegaLand Trainer Enterprise package
The OmegaLand Trainer Enterprise package includes a network function that allows the same system configuration used in simulators for education and training to be distributed, eliminating the need for settings on individual PCs. Multiple people can now share the same system configuration, allowing them to work together when tackling issues. Furthermore, the network function eases the task of upgrading this software. With this feature, the applications installed on individual client PCs are automatically upgraded whenever the application on the server is upgraded.
Russian, Chinese, Korean, and French language support
In addition to Japanese and English, OmegaLand now supports simulation graphics in Russian, Chinese, Korean, and French, enabling operators to perform monitoring and operation in their own language.
Enhanced replication of plant behaviors
While retaining the functionality that enables users to freely and intuitively create panoramic and highly realistic simulations using images captured with a 360-degree camera, plant models created using OmegaLand V3.5 now provide even more accurate replication of plant behaviors. For example, with facilities such as distillation column units and condensation units, the models now more accurately replicate the effective work performed with fluids by introducing factors, such as defects in water seals and pump efficiency of centrifugal pumps. Furthermore, additional calculation methods increase the degree of freedom in adjusting the physical characteristics of water, which enables more realistic replications of actual phenomena.
Targeted applications include process learning and plant operation training simulators for operators and engineers, support for plant operations by enhancing plant visualization with a digital twin, and process verification and analysis, instrumentation system verification and review.
