The PhiSim Multi-Domain Compatible Model Library

SOLIZE, in partnership with SHERPA Engineering (France), provides PhiSim, a multi-domain plant modeling library.

  • PhiSim is a multi-domain compatible component library to extend MATLAB®/Simulink®
  • PhiSim can be used to develop control systems and system-level performance tests
  • PhiSim modes can run in real-time, and therefore can be used for MIL, SIL, and HIL
  • Simulink models can be created from requirement specifications and legacy C code

The PhiSim Multi-Domain Compatible Model Library


PhiSim consists of two basic libraries and an application library. You can use them in the combination you prefer, by domain.

  • Basic Library: Libraries for four domains - mechanical, electrical, hydraulic, and thermal.
  • Thermal Fluid Library: Basic library for thermal fluid.
  • Application Library: Application-dedicated library.


Modeling of Full Vehicles

Full-vehicle modelModeling of Full Vehicles

  • PhiSim is based on bond graph theory. In this theory, components connect to each other by exchanging quantities of physical mass, automatically adhering to the law of conservation of mass and energy. Energy is a physical quantity that is common to all domains, and its use allows the connection of different domains, enabling multi-domain physics modeling.
  • General and simple components are provided per domain. Large systems such as full vehicles can be modeled by connecting the components.
