Mynah updates Mimic simulation software to 64-bit

April 3, 2015 – Mynah Technologies announces Mimic Simulation Software v3.6, built on a complete 64-bit architecture, including double precision floating point calculations and extended support of 64 simulation nodes.

Mimic v3.6 includes the release of a mineral processing object library that includes 14 advanced modeling objects, integrated with solids property tracking, particle size distribution and tunable comminution matrix in every object.  

Life science users can do lifecycle dynamic simulation with the Bioreactor advanced modeling object. Developed by industry veteran Greg McMillan and based upon the ISA publication “New Directions In Bioprocess Modeling and Control,” the Mimic Bioreactor model provides opportunities to improve the operation of biotech facilities and the development of biotherapeutics. 

Oil & gas and chemical plants can use dynamic modeling objects including the Advanced Turbine (gas & steam), updated Furnace and significant performance improvements to Mimic’s Pressure-Flow Solver. 

A user defined multi-threading engine allows for high level parallel computing and optimization of simulation performance. 

The Mimic Bulk Generation Utility, enhanced in v3.6, allows simulations to be generated directly from project design data for any control system platform.  This also allows the user to begin development of the dynamic simulator prior to the control system configuration, extending the life cycle benefits of the simulator investment even earlier into the project.

The Mimic v3.6 component database, that now includes over 1,500 compounds, also allows the user to define custom or pseudo components providing additional modeling flexibility and performance.

Mimic v3.6 also includes the release of the Mimic External Modeling Interface (Memi) which provides a direct, synchronized DLL interface to the Mimic simulation engine.  This allows users to quickly and effectively integrate process models developed in other software packages or programming languages.

Mimic was designed for plant life cycle business results through easy integration with any control system simulator platform.  In Mimic v3.6, this has been extended with the release of the ABB 800xA simulated IO driver. In addition, Mimic v3.6 provides easy integration with Emerson Process Management DeltaV, Schneider Electric Unity and Quantum platforms, Rockwell PlantPAx, Siemens S7 PLC Simulator, and any other automation systems that support OPC, Modbus TCP/IP, or EtherNet/IP protocols.

Mimic v3.6 also includes usability enhancements to the Mimic Operator Training Manager, which provides easy, intuitive development of operator training systems.

Mimic v3.6 is available for any new system purchases.  Mimic users who are current on Mimic Software Support can upgrade to Mimic v3.6 for no additional charge.
