FMI Add-In – Released 2.0

  • Support for loading and simulating 2.0 FMUs.
  • It is now possible to simulate FMUs containing 64-bit Windows binaries. Both 32- and 64-bit FMUs can be simulated in both the 32- and 64-bit FMI Add-In for Excel distributions. If an FMU contains both 32- and 64- bit binaries the 32-bit binary will be used for simulation.
  • New Ribbon design with improved usability and added features.
    • Added new Add case and Remove case buttons.
    • Number of processes are now in the Ribbon rather than the Simulation sheet.
    • It is now possible to specify the number of cases that will initially be in a created Simulation sheet.
  • New sheet styles and layouts with improved presentation of data and usability. Upgrading from Sheets generated by earlier version is not supported.
    • Color coding now clearly mark which cells the user is encouraged to interact with.
    • Headers and better layout clearly separates different areas.
    • And much more.
  • It is now possible to create plots for an Simulation sheet using the new Create plot button in the Ribbon.
  • No need to save Simulation sheet before simulation or initialization. If saved, the old behavior with using the workbooks directory as current directory for simulation and initialization is used. If unsaved, a temporary directory is used.
  • Changed default values for the experiment column in the FMU sheet for 1.0 FMUs:
    • constants cannot be indata by default.
    • discrete locals are at least outdata by default.
    • inputs are not outdata by default.
  • Script functions have input that is no longer used:
    • inputTypes in FMIInitialize0 and FMISimulate0 is unused.
  • Fixed bug where running an experiment with an FMU on a path with extended ASCII characters failed. For example, the path “C:/User/René/myFMU.fmu” will now work if used in the Simulation sheet.
  • Pop-ups are no longer produced by FMI Add-In when the Excel flag Application.DisplayAlerts is set to false.
