Did you know?

Did you know… there is a filter for the sensors and actuators of a component?

So when you have a component with a rather long list of sensors and actuators and you want to find a specific sensor quickly, you can just type (a part of) the sensor name in the filter and only the matching sensors will be displayed. For example, suppose you want to use a sensor for some temperature at a radiator. When you choose the context menu item “Open connection attributes…” for the radiator, you will get a long list. Simply type “temp” in the filter, press return, and the list is reduced to just the entries containing “temp”. In this window you can also change the order of the columns, so if you would like the actuators to be in the leftmost column and the sensors in the second one, you can drag the columns to the desired position.

Did you know… you can quickly change the appearance of a connector line in the window for the inner circuits by simply double-clicking on the line?

By default, a line connecting two components leaves a green connection point in a horizontal direction and a red one in a vertical direction. If you wish to change this appearance, it can be done either by the “usual” way of dragging out the blue connection points, or by simply double-clicking on the connection line itself.

Did you know… you can always find the most recent modeling examples in our Online Library on the KULI website by selecting the sorting option “Newest to Oldest”?

The Online Library is easily accessible from the KULI toolbar or from the File Menu.

 

Did you know… you can change units in the table of KULI lab individually?

In the table header row “Unit” of almost each column it is possible to open the context menu and change the units of the parameter in the column directly.

The context menu can be opened by right-clicking on the table or header cells. 
Based on the new selected unit the values in the column will be changed.

More options can be found in the Online Help by searching for “Edit Tables”.

 

Did you know… you can easily integrate a KULI model into a Simulink simulation?

Download the “KULI Simulink Toolbox” from the KULI website and install it onto your PC. You will then see a new “KULI Simulink Toolbox” entry in your Simulink library. Use this toolbox with its easy-to-use user interface to create a connection to your desired KULI model with only a few steps. A built-in help in Simulink will assist you in using the toolbox.
