The COM interface, developed by Microsoft®, provides a standardized interface for programs to communicate with each other.
KULI has a set of built-in COM commands, which allow other programs to run and control a KULI simulation.
The current example is a simple demonstration of KULI controlled by Microsoft EXCEL. For a certain cooling system the mechanical fan is varied and its performance regarding mass flow and power demand is output. Input and output parameters in the KULI file are defined by so-called COM objects.
The example is based on “ExTruck.scs” from the KULI installation setup.Usable from release: KULI 8.0-1.04
