AFT Fathom Extended Time Simulation (XTS) Module

Model Dynamic System Behaviour

Many design and operating simulation questions can’t be answered without knowing how critical parameters vary over time. Extend your modelling capabilities into the time domain by performing a series of steady-state solutions with variables changing automatically to achieve a dynamic simulation of your system.

The AFT Fathom XTS module lets you define a wide range of actions to occur during the time simulation, including:

  • Tank volume and liquid level tracking (predict how long to fill and drain Tanks)
  • Pump start/stop and speed variation
  • Valve position changes
  • Control valve setpoint variation

Reporting Features

  • Text and graphical output clearly displays time varying parameters such as:
    • liquid height in tanks
    • flow and pressure in pipes
    • pump operating conditions
    • valve position and more
  • Unique animation feature that dynamically displays time varying parameters along selected flow paths
