Voltage Table

Voltage source by linear interpolation in a table

 Description The Voltage Table source generates a voltage signal by interpolation from a table using time as the input value. The first column specifies the time values and the selected column specifies the voltage values. The time values must be monotonic increasing. The data can be provided in one of the three different ways by selecting the appropriate option from the data source parameter (see Data Source Options section below).

Data Source Options

The data source parameter selects the source for the data. It can be either file, attachment, or inline.

 • file: the data is saved in an Excel or a CSV file on the hard drive. Use the data parameter to browse to and select the data file.
 • attachment: the data set is attached to the MapleSim model. Use the data parameter to select the attachment that contains the data set.
 Note: In the Attachments pane, your data set file must be attached in the Data Sets category. For more information, see Attaching a File to a Model.
 – Attach a Microsoft® Excel® (.xls/.xlsx) or comma separated value (.csv) file containing the data values to the model.
 – Generate a data set in the Apps Manager tab using either the Data Generation app or Random Data Generation app. Data sets that you generate have the .csv file extension. For more information about MapleSim apps, see Opening MapleSim Apps and Templates.
 • inline: enter the data table in the table parameter as an m (rows) by n (columns) matrix.
 – To change the dimensions of table, right-click (Control-click for Mac®) the parameter field and select Edit Matrix Dimensions. In the Matrix Dimensions dialog, enter values for the number or rows and columns and then click OK.

For all data source options, the first column in the data table represents the time. The other columns, $2$ through n, represent the output data.

The column parameter selects which data column to output if your data table has more than two columns. By default, the second column, $2$, is output.
