Library documentation

Documentation forms part of Modelica Standard Library (MSL) and of Modelon Impact Libraries (what is equivalent modelon terminology for its own libraries compared with MSL).

Modelon Impact is provided with opensource Modelica Standard Library as default and include all standard documentation. It is possible to choose between the MSL versions 3.2.3 or 4.0.0.

Modelon provides a suite of proprietary libraries available based on Modelon Impact licensing version. Users can add own libraries which may or may not include the documentation.

Modelica Standard Library documentation🔗

The Modelica Standard Library UsersGuide can be found at the top of MSL library tree.

Click once on the triangle to open up the tree.


Double clicking on the User Guide opens an "empty" canvas. Modelon Impact displays the model layer on the canvas which is empty in this case.

There are several ways to access the component-specific documentation listed below.

Way 1 - Right click on the component within the library and choose Show Documentation.

Way 2 - Right click on any component placed on canvas and choose Show documentation.

Way 3 - Component documentation can be shown within the right panel by clicking on the INFORMATION.

This enables an extra window showing the component documentation.

Modelon libraries documentation can be accessed using the same approach as for Modelica Standard Library (MSL).

The UsersGuide in Modelon libraries can be found under Information in Modelon library tree.
