HPS stands for High Performance Simulation. It comprises HPS Engine (HPSE) and HPS Model Definition Language (HPSMDL) projects. The engine is a tool that loads a model defined in HPSMDL and simulate it. The model defines state-machines and their hierarchical composition. HPSMDL is a language in which the model is defined.

HPS is created by Alex Netkachov during his PhD research work at City University, London.
