The gPROMS Block Object for Simulink allows any model written in gPROMS to be embedded as a continuous block within a Simulink block diagram. The block may have any number of input and output ports, each typically involving a relatively small subset of the gPROMS model's variables. The gPROMS Block Object for Simulink uses a combination of symbolic and numerical manipulations to reduce the IPDAE in the gPROMS model to a set of nonlinear ordinary differential equations (ODEs). These are then solved by Simulink's numerical solvers together with those from all other blocks.
Typical users of the gPROMS Block Object for Simulink are engineers and scientists who wish to solve complex mathematical models while continuing to benefit from Simulink's graphical user interface. The tool is particularly suited for use by multi-disciplinary teams, typically involving control engineers using Simulink to design and tune control systems for sophisticated process, mechanical or aerospace applications modeled in gPROMS.
