Abstract

BIO-Sim is a software package developed at Georgia Southern University that simulates the electrical power consumption of devices in a planetary habitat life support system. BIO-Sim consists of four parts: a graphical user interface (GUI), a power usage simulation, a data model, and a server/database. The GUI allows planners to easily enter/adjust device schedules; view the resulting power consumption on a bar chart, as well as the average power and total energy requirements. The simulation uses device schedules as input and creates the power consumption data. The database stores device properties and schedules. This paper concentrates on a detailed description of the software package.
