Paper Abstract

To predict the performance of the E-ELT three sets of toolkits are developed at ESO: i) The main structure and associated optical unit dynamical and feedback control toolkit, ii) Active optics and phasing toolkit, and iii) adaptive optics simulation toolkit. There was a deliberate policy not to integrate all of the systems into a massive model and tool. The dynamical and control time scale differences are used to separate the simulation environments and tools. Therefore, each toolkit contains an appropriate detail of the problem and holds sufficient overlap with the others to ensure the consistency of the results. In this paper, these toolkits together with some examples are presented.
