How to install ModelicaRes
- Download and install ActivePython
- Open Command Prompt
pypm install modelicares
ModelicaRes is a free, open-source tool to manage Modelica simulations, interpret results, and create publishable figures. It is currently possible to
- Auto-generate simulation scripts,
- Browse data,
- Perform custom calculations, and
- Produce various plots and diagrams.
The figures are generated via matplotlib, which offers a rich set of plotting routines. ModelicaRes includes convenient functions to automatically pre-format and label some figures, like xy plots, Bode and Nyquist plots, and Sankey diagrams. ModelicaRes can be scripted or run from a Python interpreter with math and matrix functions from NumPy.
For more information, please see the main project site or the doc folder of the package for the full documentation and many examples. The development site is https://github.com/kdavies4/modelicares.
An installable copy of this package can be downloaded from the main project site or the PyPI page. After extracting the package, run the set up script (setup.py) from the base folder. On Windows, use the following command:
python setup.py install
On Linux, use:
sudo python setup.py install
The matplotlibrc file in the bin folder has some recommended revisions to matplotlib's defaults. To use it, move or copy the file to the working directory or matplotlib's configuration directory. See http://matplotlib.org/users/customizing.html for details.
The main author is Kevin Davies. Kevin Bandy also helped with the development. Third-party code has been included from:
- Jason Grout (ArrowLine class),
- Jason Heeris (efficient base-10 logarithm),
- Richard Murray (python-control), and
- Joerg Raedler (method to expand a Modelica variable tree - from DyMat).
