The Modular Modeling System (MMS™), first released in 1984, was the first dynamic modeling system designed for rapid simulation of power plants by using pre-engineered components called Modules. Now in our seventh major release, MMS™ Version 7 is an extremely effective, dynamic simulation software package with proven applications throughout the world.
Modular – A collection of pre-engineered components called Modules that can be used off the shelf without modification. The MMS module library includes modules for Fossil Fueled power plants, Renewable Energy power plants, and Nuclear power plants.
Modeling – Dynamic simulation models of power plants can be developed by using pre-engineered components like pipes, valves, ducts, boilers, Nuclear reactors, super-heaters, feedwater heaters, motors, generators, transformers, breakers, and process control blocks such as PID control and flip-flops.
System – MMS™ is not a single program, but rather a system that consists of module libraries, programs, scripts, and tools that are designed to efficiently work together.
Each MMS™ module has been developed by experienced simulation engineers using “first principles;” that means each module has been formulated using fundamental governing laws. For example, our thermo-hydraulic modules conform to the first law of thermodynamics requiring the conversation of energy. As a result, MMS™ provides less experienced users the ability to develop high-fidelity dynamic simulations quickly and efficiently. In addition, our more advanced users will appreciate that we provide theory documentation for each module, which contains the fundamental equations and assumptions for that module.
