This paper presents partially asynchronous parallel simulation of continuous-system (PAPSoCS) and some approaches to the issues of its implementation on a multicomputer system. To guarantee the simulation results correct and speedup the simulation, the scheme for efficient PAPSoCS is proposed and the virtual topology star is constructed to match the path of message passing for solving algorithm-architecture adequation problem. Under the circumstances that messages frequently passed inter-processor are much shorter, typically within several 4 bytes, asynchronous communication mode is employed to reduce the communication ratio. Experiment results show that asynchronous parallel simulation has much higher efficiency than its synchronous counterpart.
