Running a Simulation

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

After specification of the Parameters/Initial Values, the Run Properties and Plot Properties you can start a simulation run by choosing the appropriate command from the Simulation menu.

Run: Select the Run command to start or continue a simulation run. Once a run is started, the Stop command becomes active. The run can be interrupted by selecting this command.
Stop: Use the Stop command to interrupt a simulation. Once a simulation has stopped it can be continued by selecting the Start Simulation command.
Clear
All Runs: Select the Clear All Runs command to clear all runs that were performed, from the graphical screen and from the computer memory.
Last Run: Select the Clear Last Run command to clear the run that was performed last, from the graphical screen and from memory.
Previous Runs: Select the Clear Previous Runs command to clear all runs, but the last, from the graphical screen and from memory.
One Step: Use the One Step command to calculate one new simulation point. Using this command repeatedly, allows you to run a simulation step by step.
Brute Force: Using the Brute Force command, curves are displayed after complete calculation of a simulation run. This saves time (re)drawing curves during calculations and therefore considerably speeds up simulation.
Multiple Run: Select the Multiple Run command to start multiple runs needed for the Time Domain Toolbox. Runs can be interrupted by selecting the Stop command.
Replay
3D Animation: Any 3D Animation that was performed during a simulation run, can be quickly replayed using this option.
Real Time 3D Animation: Any 3D animation that was performed during a simulation run, can be replayed in real time (i.e. frames are skipped if necessary) using this option.
Read Datafile: Use the Read Data File command to read previously stored simulation runs from file.
Copy States: With the Copy States command the current independent state variables can be imported as new initial values. Current state variables are the state variables at the end of a simulation run or at the point where a simulation run was interrupted.
