ModelicaRes 0.11.1

Utilities to set up and analyze Modelica simulation experiments

Latest Version: 0.12.2

Utilities to set up and analyze Modelica simulation experiments

ModelicaRes is a free, open-source tool to conveniently manage Modelica simulations, interpret results, and create publishable figures. It is possible to

  • auto-generate simulation scripts,
  • browse data,
  • perform custom calculations,
  • produce various plots and diagrams, and
  • export data to various formats via pandas.

The figures are generated via matplotlib, which offers a rich set of plotting routines. ModelicaRes includes functions to automatically pre-format and label some figures, like xy plots, Bode and Nyquist plots, and Sankey diagrams. ModelicaRes can be scripted or used in an interactive Python session with math and matrix functions from NumPy.

Please see the tutorial, which is available as an IPython notebook or online as a static page. For the full documentation and many more examples, see the main website.


The easiest way to install this package is to use pip:

pip install modelicares

On Linux, it may be necessary to have root privileges:

sudo pip install modelicares

Another way is to download and extract a copy of the package. The main website and the release branch at GitHub have copies with built documentation and compiled examples. The copy on the PyPI page only has the files to install the package, build the documentation, and execute the examples. Once you have a copy, run the following command from the base folder:

python install

Or, on Linux:

sudo python install

Some of the required packages may not install automatically.

The matplotlibrc file in the base folder has some recommended revisions to matplotlib’s defaults. To use it, copy it to the working directory or matplotlib’s configuration directory. See for details.
