KULI FMU Generator released

The KULI FMU Generator is a tool that lets you export a KULI model as an FMU to be used in comprehensive co-simulation scenarios.

A KULI FMU is self-contained and follows the FMI standard 2.0 (see https://fmi-standard.org/). As a consequence, a KULI FMU does not require any KULI installation on the target machine. All files required for the simulation are included in the FMU.

The interface of the FMU can be fully defined in KULI using the well-known KULI COM objects. In KULI simply mark the COM object as an FMU connector and you are done. In addition, you can also give the connector a description and additional information, so that your FMU is even more intuitive to use.

Exporting the model is also easy. With just a few clicks, your model is exported and ready to be used in an FMI compatible co-simulation environment on any Windows machine. The FMU Generator automatically reads all the relevant IDs and comments as well as the default values and the units of the COM objects and generates appropriate interfaces. In addition, help files and icons can easily be added to the FMU.

It should also be mentioned that the FMU Generator does not require any special privileges for installation. In addition, product updates can be installed with just one click.

Exchanging a KULI model is simple as never before.
