Summary, in English

Integrated models including optics, structures, control systems, and disturbances are important design tools for Extremely Large Telescopes (ELTs). An integrated model has keen formulated for the European ELT and it includes telescope structure, main servos, primary mirror segment control system, wind, optics, wavefront sensor, deformable mirror, and an AO reconstructor and controller. There are three model phases: Initialization, execution of a solver to determine time responses, and post-processing. In near future, the model will be applied for performance studies and design trade-offs for the European ELT.
