# VILLASframework
VILLASframework is a suite of tools for performing distributed real-time simulations.
It is developed by the [Institute for Automation of Complex Power Systems](./
## Components
VILLASframework consists of several components:
### <img src="../img/villas_node.png" width="35"> VILLASnode
VILLASnode is a flexible gateway for simulation data. It offers interfaces to simulation equipment, databases and web services.
- [Source Download]({{ site.url }}/node/src/)
- [Web Mockup]({{ site.url }}/node/socket/)
- Documentation
- [Developer]({{ site.url }}/node/doc/develop/)
### <img src="../img/villas_fpga.png" width="35"> VILLASfpga
VILLASfpga is an extension to VILLASnode for hard real-time / FPGA-supported simulation.
### <img src="../img/villas_web.png" width="35"> VILLASweb
VILLASweb is a web interface for planning, preparing, executing and analyzing distributed simulations.
### <img src="../img/villas_controller.png" width="35"> VILLAScontroller
VILLAScontroller provides a unified API for controlling simulation equipment from different vendors (e.g. OPAL-RT, RTDS, Typhon, Simulink).
