Equations models are the models at the lowest level in the model hierarchy. A model without an interface (inputs, output, ports), will have no hierarchy and is thus automatically an equation model. If you have opened an equation model, the right part of the Editor shows the Equation Editor. In the Equation Editor you can enter and edit equation models.
