The study of complex systems usually requires hybrid simulations because they have components that are continuous in nature and other that are discrete. It has been proved that DEVS is s a common denominator to combine different Modeling and Simulation methodologies (such as Petri Nets, Cellular Automata, Modelica etc.). We present a cellular model solution to solve PDEs as an extension of classical numerical methods combined with the Cell-DEVS formalism. We explain how to use Cell-DEVS to solve PDEs, focusing on two examples: the PDEs of a Heat Diffusion Process solved with the Method of Lines, and the Shallow Water Equations solved using the Lax-Wendroff method. We will discuss the advantages of solving PDEs with Cell-DEVS, in particular its integration with other hybrid models. © 2018 IEEE
