The simulation system SIMBA# Biogas is a versatile software for modelling and dynamic simulation of biogas plants (agricultural, waste) which are based on the wet digestion principle. SIMBA# Biogas is a stand-alone simulation platform and replaces the biogas modelling of the previous software SIMBA 6.6, which requires the software Matlab®/ Simulink from MathWorks Inc.
SIMBA# Biogas offers all components needed for a sound analysis of wet digestion plants. The solution includes explicit reactor models, a digestion model approach capable of multiple substrates, based on the Anaerobic Digestion Model No. 1 (ADM1) of the International Water Association, and a corresponding influent model. SIMBA# Biogas allows the realisation of a wide range of applications in engineering practice, research and education. This includes design and optimisation of plant layouts, processes and control concepts
SIMBA# Biogas is programmed in C# and can be used with Windows 7, 8 and 10 operating systems.
