The latest release includes enhancements for better mining and solids process simulations, optimized and enhanced simulation performance and a new simulated I/O driver for Siemens PCS7 and S7 Systems. Enhancements for mining and solids process simulations include high pressure grinding roller support for the Crusher Advanced Modeling Object and PSD View, a new view that displays P30, P50 and P80 marks for each size distribution in process streams. Support of model speedup/slowdown and execution rates as fast as 100 ms and Rosin-Rammler or Gates-Gaudin-Schuhmann model data configuration have been added to Bin, Flotation Cell, Mill, Settling Tank and Vessel in the Advanced Modeling Objects. Simulation performance enhancements and optimizations to Mimic streams and the pressure/flow solver result in 30% increase in model performance as well as improved model accuracy supporting larger, more complex models. These performance enhancements include: Valve Object improvements to support more valve types and more realistic mechanical behavior; Vessel Object support of separate liquid and vapor accumulation; Pump Object, which now includes additional execution types and solution methods; and the new Rapid Modeler function block, which identifies process response type and dynamics quickly, allowing for better identification of control design and tuning improvements.
