ns-3 FMI Export ModuleModule fmi-export enables the FMI-compliant simulation coupling with ns-3 scripts, i.e., ns-3 script are launched and executed through an FMI-compliant co-simulation interface. In terms of FMI terminology, ns-3 is the slave application, and generated FMUs launch ns-3 and synchronize its execution during runtime (tool coupling).

Module fmu-examples provides examples for using the fmi-export module. The module comprises dedicated models (clients and servers), helpers and simulation scripts implementing example applications, whose functionality is then exported as FMU for Co-Simulation. Furthermore, test applications (written in Python) show how the resulting FMUs can be used in a simulation.
FMI++The FMI++ library intends to bridge the gap between the basic FMI specifications and the typical requirements of simulation tools (partly extended in ERIGrid)
FMITerminalBlockTwo way interface between the Functional Mockup Interface (FMI) and IEC 61499-based controllers (partly extended in ERIGrid)
mosaikFlexible smart grid co-simulation framework (partly extended in ERIGrid)
WEST toolThe tool allows creation of an FMU server to deliver the FMU in all confidentiality and security. The adaptive interface provides the possibility to do simulation with FMU both in model exchange and co-simulation mode. Upon finalization of installation, user can deposit new FMU into server and can get access to them via webservice. The tool now support FMI 1.0. A new version supporting FMI 2.0 is under development.
