I have attached a simple TWDM PON simulation. But the simulation stops after calculating 3R_Regenerator_9 and message appears “Optisystem has Stopped working”. I plan to use 4 wavelengths for DS and US eventually but im first trying to get it running for one wavelength and then will add progressively. I have used 2.5Gbps for DS and 1.25Gbps US (will increase it later also).

What could be the reason? Im using Optisystem 7.

      Welcome back shaid.in your previous forum topic i think we have correctly done the WDM PON.Since you are working on optisystem 7 i will try to check your file and get back to you soon.As far as i know system stops working when there is conflict of global parameter settings.try to increase seq. length .Let me know if it works.Google about the search articles on the same topic,it will help ypu to selecting parameters.

      Hi Shahid, I ran your simulation and it was interrupted by the error you mentioned. I remember another forum member using v7 and using photodector who was faced with the similar problem. So I suggest you contact Optisystem technical support and see if this is due to the version you are using.

      Have Increased the sequence length to 256bits but error appears earlier than previous case(128 bit sequence length).

      Now I run the simulation on OptiSystem Version 13(Trial) and it also has the same error but the simulation stops earlier(at WDM Transmitter 8 and timer is at 00:00:00 ) than in Version 7. In Ver.7 the timer stops at 00:00:04.

      Now I have made some changes to simplify the circuit for troubleshooting.

      1. I reduce the no of ONU’s to 4 and now the “Simulation Stop” error has not appeared. But the simulation goes on indefinitely at the Buffer Selectors of OLT1-OLT4.

      2. I also change Bi-directional AWG Mux/DeMux to Uni-directional Mux and DeMux so that I set the frequency for DS and US separately in Mux and DeMux. (But still same problem i.e:simulation goes on indefinitely at the Buffer Selectors of OLT1-OLT4).

      3.Now I remove the Rxr Section of OLT-2,3 and 4. Only OLT1 Receive section is present. But Still same problem i.e:simulation goes on indefinitely at the Buffer Selectors of OLT1(Buffer Sel 3).

      I have attached the latest Project File. I cant understand whats wrong with circuit.

        Hi Shahid, Now that you have made the aforementioned changes to your system, is your simulation still interrupted with an error which forces you to close Optisystem? I have been running the simulation for about 20 minutes and it is still going on! So I would like to know what happens finally.

          No, the simulation is no more interrupted with an error which forces to close Optisystem, but simulation goes on indefinitely at the Buffer Selectors of OLT1(Buffer Sel 3). I Have attached the file in my previous post. Plz have a look.

          I definitely did that, too. But I’m afraid I have no suggestions for this and anything I say is somehow irrelevant to your main concern here. Have you tried contacting Optisystem technical support?

      Hi shaid,error of buffer selector comes only when it calculates again n again then reason would be any free port.check all the ports in system if any port is free then attach null signal there.This happend to me many times and now i solve it easily

        Hi Sam, I have further simplified the circuit but it has same error. I have chkd all empty inputs and they have Null connection. Im attaching recent file. Plz have a look.

      how can i contact optisystem support for resolving this problem?

        You can give message to Damian and address the issue precisely. If you can’t figure out the problem despite all the efforts and applying all the suggestions you have been given, I think they will tell you whether it’s a problem related to the version you are using or not.

      Hi shaid,i think problem in your system design not in software.I have just looked at your system and found so many errors .you left many ports open which is a cause of bufferselector calculations.your implementation has some in valid point.i will modify it for you,i suggest you to try system by connecting grounds and null signals to empty ports

      Hello Shahid,

      It can be challenging to support software older versions of the software especially when it is much older. Any project files I create you will not be able to open. However, I have some suggestions that might help.

      1) When I ran the simulation I did not get any errors but it would not stop and it seemed like the Buffer Selector component was hanging. I deleted the buffer selector.

      2) I also did not know why there were two splitters cascaded so I removed one to reduce the complexity of the simulation.

      3) By increasing the signal iterations and also an initial delay in the layout parameters I got the Eye diagram attached.

      When you run into problems like this you really just need to cut parts of the simulation out until you can find the errors by simplifying the project. Also following the signal as it propagates through the system with time domain visualizers is essential. If you add the Splitter back I think all you would need to do is increase the number of signal iterations.

      Regards

        Hi Damian, thanks for the reply. I used the Buffer Selector to simulate Burst Mode Recevier at OLT. Actually I wanted to create 128 users thats why I used two stages of Splitter (First 1:8 and then 1:16).
        I have now installed the Ver13(trial). Can u upload the project file so that I can also run it on Ver13.
        Thanks

          The buffer selector is not really used for that function. It is a simulation tool to grab certain signals (from the different signal iterations) generated in bidirectional or loop simulations. I would suggest going through the bidirectional tutorial:

          Lesson 5: Bidirectional Simulation — Working with Multiple Iterations

          I left in the first splitter in the attached project because the simulation still works, it appears through that there is too much loss so the thermal noise at the receiver is making the Eye diagram unreadable. Again some of the things you were missing here like Initial Delay are ideas that are explained in the tutorial.

          Hey Damian,i just want to know which optisystem version you are using .is it v 13.0.4 or other? I am not able to open that file with trial version.Also curious to see modified file.Because in last file shaid have used some components which could not understand why he used them.

          I have version 13.0.4 build 475, but all versions of 13 should be able to open it.

      Hi Shaid,Damian suggested you right .i have also said you in on of the post that your system is somewhere not correct because i dont know you have used that splitter twice.Follow tge instruction as damian said,start from simpler one.I think damian file would be of latest version which you dont have.Even if he provide you a file ,you will not able to open that.

      Hi, Damian, Im unable to open your attached file in trial Version 13. Snapshot of error is attached. I have 32bit version.

      I have faced same problem regarding file opening And same error appeared to me.samples were not installed that time ,i thougth i was the reason.But i havnt tried after that.I have 32 bit version so , is it due to 64 and 32 bit version mismatch??

      I tried to modify BPON Bi-directional Example from 8 to 10 ONU’s but when I run the Simulation then Optisystem(Vrsion 13-trial) stops working. Snapshot of error screen is attached along with project file.

      Now the simulation is working OK after i make the no of leading and trailing zero from script to normal values.
      After that I add SOA at OLT side (before Optical Fiber on both the Downstream and Upstream). but the signal received at ONU side has degraded then before and signal received at OLT side has improved(when compared with the case of not using SOA).

      I used Wideband Travelling Wave SOA on default settings. Im working in Optisystem Version7.

        Hi Shahid,

        Could you please upload the latest osd file you have created (the one whose results you’re referring to in your last comment) with the latest changes made to here? Thank you.

        Regards
