Simulation is the process of designing and developing a computerized model of a system or process and conducting experiments. To understand the system behavior or to evaluate several strategies which the system can be operated based on probabilistic models that allow to generate random variables and obtain significant results through methods such as inverse transform, accept-reject, composition and convolution methods.
