通过仿真分析智能电力电网和区块链市场


通过仿真分析智能电力电网和区块链市场

与世界上许多国家一样,荷兰的能源系统起源于集中市场和可再生能源发电的时代。这种情况现在正在迅速改变——能源市场开放竞争,家庭通常使用可再生能源发电,而且越来越多的人转向使用电动汽车。在这些变化发生的同时,电力供应必须保持稳定且经济适用。

Sjors Hijgenaar 对这些发展提出了与变化本身一样激进的回应——分散智能电网并且本地能源直接交易。在他的分析中,一个基于智能体的荷兰社区仿真模型证明了该建议在效率和可靠性方面的优势。这是如何运作的?

Sim Talk podcast with The AnyLogic Company CEO


Sim Talk podcast with The AnyLogic Company CEO

Andrei Borshchev recently sat down with Sim Talk podcast host, Jacob Ingalls, for a wide-ranging discussion about AnyLogic and simulation modeling. Here is an overview and link to the podcast.

The podcast discussion begins by providing insight into the state of dynamic simulation in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, giving detail to how AnyLogic began and how it changed the scene with agent based modeling. Read on for the summary and podcast link.

Beyond Market Mix Models


Beyond Market Mix Models

Traditional Marketing Mix models attempt to explore the tradeoffs amongst different marketing channels and the spends associated with them. The weaknesses of these models are, generally, their static nature and the restrictive assumptions required to apply their results. For these reasons, an American pharmaceutical company, one of the largest in the world, engaged with Sterling Simulation to explore the benefits of agent-based modeling, prior to launching a new product. The use-case was presented by Scott Hebert, Vice President of Sterling Simulation at the AnyLogic Conference 2015.

Lockheed Martin - Improving Military Aircraft Turnaround Process


Lockheed Martin - Improving Military Aircraft Turnaround Process

The military aircraft maintenance turnaround process is highly complex and includes multiple interacting and parallel workflows between humans and machines. Lockheed Martin, one of the largest companies in the aerospace, defense, security, and technologies industry sought to improve decision-making in regards to the complete turnaround process and to identify process changes that could be implemented to reduce turnaround time. There are two distinct features unique to the project. One being the use of AnyLogic to model people, machines and workstations, and how they interact, which identified previously unknown workflow peculiarities. The second, a portable Android tablet application developed and tested by the team for workflow authoring and data collection that provided the input data to the process simulation model.
