The performance of the WUVS (WSO-UV Spectrographs) can be evaluated through simulations of the expected observations. Here we discuss the implementation details and the noise models applied in the simulation software tool developed to carry on these simulations. The WUVS Simulator has been implemented as a further development of the PLATO Simulator, adapting it to the WUVS specific characteristics. It is designed to generate synthetic time-series of images by including models of all important noise sources. The expected overall noise budget of the output images is evaluated as a function of different sets of input parameters describing the instrument properties.
