ISO 16781 pdf download Space systems — Simulation requirements for control system
This International Standard provides guidance to control system engineers on what to simulate and how to use simulation to support their system engineering tasks. Ground testing limitations typically preclude a comprehensive “test as you fly” approach to most space system control systems. Likewise, flight tests are prohibitively expensive. Therefore, high-fidelity simulation models of the control system components must be validated. Wherever, possible ground test results should be compared to simulation model outputs. Validated models are then used in various simulation environments to predict flight performance. As an important means of design, analysis and validation, simulation of the control system is widely used in each phase of the control system development, including conceptual design, detailed design, prototype validation, and integrated system verification. This International Standard provides simulation requirements of control system for different phases in the process of designing a control system. Control system engineers can carry out various types of simulation experiments during various phases, according to this International Standard. This International Standard establishes a minimum set of requirements for simulation of control system. The requirements are generic in nature because of their broad applicability to all types of simulations. Implementation details of the requirements should be addressed in project-specific standards, requirements, handbooks, etc.
In general, standards can focus on engineering/technical requirements, processes, procedures, practices, or methods. This International Standard focuses on requirements and recommendations. Hence, this International Standard specifies what must be done; it does not prescribe how the requirements are to be met, nor does it specify who the responsible team is for complying with the requirements. Conflicts between this International Standard and other requirements documents shall be resolved by the responsible technical designer.
