PCS 7 / D7SYS -> Simulink
12 views (last 30 days)
as a student work and for a project partner we'd like to copy their partial power plant model into simulink. The existing model is done in Siemens PCS 7, designed with D7SYS.
My question: Does anybody know about an automatic or half automatic tool that can port models from PCS 7 / D7SYS to Simulink? Or do import / export filters exist?
If not, is it generally possible to build an import filter, or is there a text(ASCII)-based import filter?
I know mdl-files are easily structured ASCII-Files, so it should be possible.

I don't think it's that easy. We've had task before to convert MatrixX/SystemBuild model to MATLAB/Simulink model. They are very similar in nature but still it's very hard to come up with an automatic way. Barely being in ASCII format is not a sufficient reason. How easy or how hard is it to convert German to English?
Of course anything is possible. TWM and others spent tons of resources to develop tool to convert Simulink model and M code to C code (auto code generation). I haven't heard a good tool to convert C code to Simulink model yet. Unless you can found an existing tool that can do the specific task that you are looking for, I would say it's going to be very hard to develop such a tool in a short period of time.
