Research of rolling mill operation in different modes is usually executed using mathematical model of electric drives and a rolling strip. In this case, it is hard or sometimes impossible to take into account some factors, which influence metal processing processes. The authors of this paper offer to develop physical models of electric drives of a rolling mill and a coiler and a mathematical model of the rolling strip to study the processes of strip coiling on the coiling drum. Application of this virtual model of a rolling mill allows online execution of rolling mill operation study, investigation of physical processes, which take place in the mill during different modes, impact evaluation of regulation parameters in speed, moment, tension regulation systems on the mill processes. Making use of this model in the educational process will contribute to deeper understanding of real properties of a rolling mill.
