Version 1 6

Electrification Library 1.6 is part of Modelon���s 2021.2 release. New versions of Modelon libraries are sold and distributed directly from Modelon, as well as approved resellers.

New Features


  • New Getting started tutorials, covering basic features and common pitfalls.

Three-phase AC machines and inverters

  • Electro-magnetic models of the most common three-phase AC machines.
  • Power electronic DC/AC Inverters (switched and averaged implementations).
  • A set of experiments for AC machines that are useful for verification and validation.
  • New system example: ACMachineInverter
  • Examples of different fidelities of machines and inverters.


  • An example of SoC balancing between cells in a battery pack.
  • Stochastic initialization of SoC for individual cells in battery packs (example experiment).
  • Example battery with parameter variations defined using the new stochastic parameters feature in Modelon Base Library.


  • Position control mode is now part of the MultiMode machine controller (example experiment).
  • Added initialization of machine speed and angle (Initialization tab). This can also be used in the machine interface in experiment templates.
  • Introduced steady state initialization for the machine controller (speed and voltage.
  • Improved parametrization of rotor inertia for machines using a gear box.
  • It is now possible to visualize the reference frame of the Rotational3D flange in Multibody3D machines like other Rotational3D components using the visualize_reference parameter.


  • The fixed_temperature parameter is now found at top level in components like batteries and machines. This allows defining experiment templates that define if thermal dynamics should be enabled.
  • Added temperature limit monitors to thermal domains of all components.
  • Vectorized thermal interfaces for converters and machines (enabling more thermal discretization).
  • Diagram representation of heat losses in components.


  • External controller input signals now need to be explicitly enabled. This means e.g. that the external reference torque of machines are disabled by default.
  • Added scaling factor (k_pMax) to component limit controllers. This is a simpler alternative to using a centralized allocation controller.
  • Additional control bus signals for machines and batteries.


  • More information about power flow and temperatures in summary records.
