The interferometer of the advanced LIGO requires complicated software controls to operate. To better understand both the hardware and software, we should apply the same software used to control the interferometers in a simplified simulation. This project will incorporate a simulation of the control code to the seismic isolation and suspension models. By using the actual control code, we will be able to better discover issues specific to that code and distinguish them more easily from issues that may arise in the hardware of the interferometers. The ability to troubleshoot the overall system by using a simulation model is critical in effectively dealing with present and future problems.
