  During the past decades, a variety of particle optics programs have been applied for accelerator studies at the storage ring facility DELTA. Depending on the application, most programs were used offline without dynamic machine synchronisation. In order to centralize and standardize storage ring modeling capabilities, a dedicated online model server was developed and integrated into the EPICS-based control system. The core server is based on Python/EPICS service modules using OCELOT and COBEA as simulation tools. All data, actual machine readings/settings, conversion coefficients, results of simulation calculations as well as manual parameter settings, are handled via EPICS process variables. Thus, the data are transparently available in the entire control system for further processing or visualisation. To improve maintainability and adaptability, the remote presentation model controller concept was realized in the implementation. The paper explains the setup of the model server and discusses first use cases.
