VersionManagement  Version Management 
Further development and maintenance of the Modelica Standard Library is performed with two branches on the public GitHub repository of the Modelica Association.
Name: "master"
This branch contains the actual development version, i.e., all bug fixes and new features. New features must have been tested before including them. However, the exhaustive tests for a new version are (usually) not performed. This version is usually only be used by the developers of the Modelica Standard Library and is not utilized by Modelica users.
Name: "maint/3.2.3"
This branch contains the released Modelica Standard Library version (e.g., v3.2.3) where all bug fixes since this release date are included (up to a new release, when becoming available; i.e., after a new release, the previous maintenance versions are no longer changed). These bug fixes might be not yet tested with all test cases or with other Modelica libraries. The goal is that a vendor may take this version at any time for a new release of its software, in order to incorporate the latest bug fixes, without changing the version number of the Modelica Standard Library.
The general contribution workflow is usually as follows:
There are some special guidelines for changes to the maintenance branch.
annotation(version = "3.2.3", versionDate = "20181212", versionBuild = 2, dateModified = "20181212 07:40:19Z", revisionId = "$Format:%h %ci$")The "revisionId" field is a special annotation to mark a properly released (maintenance) version from unreleased commits.
Running the export command "git archive o msl.zip v3.2.3
" will expand the above "revisionId" place holder to something like:revisionId = "c04e23a0d 20181212 12:00:00 +0200$"
As a recommendation, a valid bug fix to the maintenance branch may contain one or more of the following changes.

Version 3.2.3 is backward compatible to version 3.2.2, that is models developed with versions 3.0, 3.0.1, 3.1, 3.2, 3.2.1 or 3.2.2 will work without any changes also with version 3.2.3. This version is a "cleanup" with major emphasis on quality improvement and tool compatibility. The goal is that all Modelica tools will support this package and will interpret it in the same way.

The following existing components
have been improved in a
backward compatible way:
Modelica.Blocks.Continuous  
Integrator LimIntegrator 
Added optional reset and set value inputs. 
LimPID  Added an optional feedforward input. 
Modelica.Blocks.Sources  
CombiTimeTable  The time events were not considered at the interval boundaries in case of linear interpolation and nonreplicated sample points. This has been generalized by introduction of the new parameter timeEvents with the default option to always generate time events at the interval boundaries, which might lead to slower, but more accurate simulations. 
BooleanTable IntegerTable 
Added options to set start time, shift time and extrapolation kind, especially to set periodic extrapolation. 
Modelica.Blocks.Tables  
CombiTable1D CombiTable1Ds CombiTable2D 
Added option to set the extrapolation kind and to optionally print a warning in case of extrapolated table input. 
The following existing components have been changed in a nonbackward compatible way:
Modelica.Blocks  
Interfaces.PartialNoise Noise.UniformNoise Noise.NormalNoise Noise.TruncatedNormalNoise Noise.BandLimitedWhiteNoise 
As a sideeffect of the corrected computation in Modelica.Math.Random.Utilities.impureRandomInteger the localSeed parameter is computed differently if useAutomaticLocalSeed is set to true. 
Modelica.Mechanics.MultiBody  
World  Added new parameter animateGround for optional ground plane visualization.Users that have copied the World model (of MSL 3.0, 3.0.1, 3.1, 3.2, 3.2.1, or 3.2.2) as an own World model and used it as inner world component, might have broken their models. Generally, for MSL models with subtyping (due to inner/outer), it is strongly suggested to extend from this MSL model, instead of copying it. 
Modelica.Media.Interfaces  
PartialMedium  Added new constant C_default as default value for the trace substances of medium.Users that have created an own medium by inheritance from the PartialMedium package and already added the C_default constant, might have broken their models. Users that have copied the PartialMedium package (of MSL 3.0, 3.0.1, 3.1, 3.2, 3.2.1, or 3.2.2) as an own Medium package, might have broken their models. Generally, for MSL classes with subtyping (due to a replaceable declaration), it is strongly suggested to extend from this MSL class, instead of copying it. 
The following critical errors have been fixed (i.e., errors
that can lead to wrong simulation results):
Modelica.Blocks.Sources  
TimeTable  The derivative of the TimeTable output could no longer be determined. This has been corrected. 
Modelica.Media.Air  
MoistAir.molarMass ReferenceMoistAir.molarMass 
The computation of the function output MM was wrong. This has been corrected. 
Modelica.Media.IdealGases.Common.Functions  
thermalConductivityEstimate  The computation of the function output lambda was wrong for the modified Eucken correlation, i.e., if method is set to 2. This has been corrected. 
Modelica.Media.IdealGases.Common.SingleGasesData  
CH2 CH3 CH3OOH C2CL2 C2CL4 C2CL6 C2HCL C2HCL3 CH2CO_ketene O_CH_2O HO_CO_2OH CH2BrminusCOOH C2H3CL CH2CLminusCOOH HO2 HO2minus OD ODminus 
The coefficients for blow , ahigh and bhigh were wrong. This has been corrected. 
Modelica.Media.IdealGases.Common.MixtureGasNasa  
mixtureViscosityChung  The computation of the function output etaMixture was wrong. This has been corrected. 
Modelica.Media.Incompressible.TableBased  
BaseProperties  The unit of the gas constant R for table based media was not correctly considered. This has been corrected. 
Modelica.Math.Random.Utilities  
impureRandomInteger  The function output y was not computed to yield a discrete uniform distribution for a minimum value imin of 1. This has been corrected.

Version 3.2.2 is backward compatible to version 3.2.1, that is models developed with versions 3.0, 3.0.1, 3.1, 3.2, or 3.2.1 will work without any changes also with version 3.2.2 (with exception of the, usually uncritical, nonbackwards compatible changes listed below with regards to external object libraries, and one bug fix introduced in 3.2.1 Build.3 for noncircular pipes that can be nonbackwards compatible if a user constructed a new pipe model based on Modelica.Fluid.Pipes.BaseClasses.WallFriction.PartialWallFriction, see details below).
The exact difference between package Modelica version 3.2.2 and version 3.2.1 is summarized in the following two comparison tables:
This release of package Modelica, and the accompanying ModelicaTest, has been tested with the following tools (the tools are listed alphabetically. At the time of the test, some of the tools might not yet supported the complete Modelica package. For more details of the tests see #1867):
The following Modelica packages have been tested that they work together with this release of package Modelica (alphabetical list):
The following new libraries have been added:
Modelica.Electrical.PowerConverters 
This library offers models for rectifiers, inverters and DC/DCconverters. (This library was developed by Christian Kral and Anton Haumer). 
Modelica.Magnetic.QuasiStatic.FundamentalWave 
This library provides quasistatic models of multiphase machines (induction machines, synchronous machines) in parallel (with the same parameters but different electric connectors)
to the transient models in Modelica.Magnetic.FundamentalWave. Quasistatic means that electric transients are neglected, voltages and currents are supposed to be sinusoidal. Mechanical and thermal transients are taken into account. This library is especially useful in combination with the Modelica.Electrical.QuasiStationary library in order to build up very fast simulations of electrical circuits with sinusoidal currents and voltages. (This library was developed by Christian Kral and Anton Haumer). 
Sublibraries of Modelica.Magnetic.FluxTubes 
New elements for modeling ferromagnetic (static) and eddy current (dynamic) hysteresis effects and permanent magnets have been added.
The FluxTubes.Material package is also extended to provide hysteresis data for several magnetic materials. These data is partly based on own measurements.
For modeling of ferromagnetic hysteresis, two different hysteresis models have been implemented: The simple Tellinen model and the considerably
more detailed Preisach hysteresis model. The following packages have been added:

Sublibraries for noise modeling  Several new sublibraries have been added allowing the modeling of reproducible noise. The most important new sublibraries are (for more details see below): (These extensions have been developed by Andreas Klöckner, Frans van der Linden, Dirk Zimmer, and Martin Otter from DLR Institute of System Dynamics and Control). 
Modelica.Utilities functions for matrix read/write 
New functions are provided in the Modelica.Utilities.Streams
sublibrary to write matrices in MATLAB MAT format on file and read matrices in this format from file.
The MATLAB MAT formats v4, v6, v7 and v7.3 (in case the tool supports HDF5) are supported by these functions.
Additionally, example models are provided under
Modelica.Utilities.Examples
to demonstrate the usage of these functions in models. For more details see below. (These extensions have been developed by Thomas Beutlich from ITI GmbH). 
Modelica.Math sublibrary for FFT 
The new sublibrary FastFourierTransform
provides utility and convenience functions to compute the Fast Fourier Transform (FFT).
Additionally two examples are present to demonstrate how to compute an FFT during continuoustime
simulation and store the result on file. For more details see below. (These extensions have been developed by Martin Kuhn and Martin Otter from DLR Institute of System Dynamics and Control). 
The following new components have been added
to existing libraries:

The following existing components have been changed in a nonbackward compatible way:
Electrical.Analog.Semiconductors.  
HeatingDiode  Removed protected variable k "Boltzmann's constant". Calculate protected constant q "Electron charge" from already known constants instead of defining a protected variable q. 
HeatingNPN HeatingPNP 
Removed parameter K "Boltzmann's constant" and q "Elementary electronic charge". Calculate instead protected constant q "Electron charge" from already known constants. Users that have used these parameters might have broken their models; the (although formal nonbackwards compatible) change offers the users a safer use.

(Icon for release notes in documentation).
Version 3.2 is backward compatible to version 3.1, i.e., models developed with versions 3.0, 3.0.1, or 3.1 will work without any changes also with version 3.2. This version is a major improvement:
Version 3.2 is slightly based on the Modelica Specification 3.2. It uses the following new language elements (compared to Modelica Specification 3.1):
A large part of the new classes have been developed with partial financial support by BMBF (BMBF Förderkennzeichen: 01IS07022F) within the ITEA2 project EUROSYSLIB. We highly appreciate this funding.
The following new libraries have been added:
Complex 
This is a toplevel record outside of the Modelica Standard Library.
It is used for complex numbers and contains overloaded operators.
From a users point of view, Complex is used in a similar way as the
builtin type Real. Example: Real a = 2; Complex j = Modelica.ComplexMath.j; Complex b = 2 + 3*j; Complex c = (2*b + a)/b; Complex d = Modelica.ComplexMath.sin(c); Complex v[3] = {b/2, c, 2*d}; (This library was developed by Marcus Baur, DLR). 
Modelica.ComplexBlocks 
Library of basic input/output control blocks with Complex signals. This library is especially useful in combination with the new Modelica.Electrical.QuasiStationary library in order to build up very fast simulations of electrical circuits with periodic currents and voltages. (This library was developed by Anton Haumer). 
Modelica.Electrical.QuasiStationary 
Library for quasistationary electrical singlephase and multiphase AC simulation. This library allows very fast simulations of electrical circuits with sinusoidal currents and voltages by only taking into account the quasistationary, periodic part and neglecting nonperiodic transients. (This library was developed by Anton Haumer and Christian Kral). 
Modelica.Electrical.Spice3 
Library with components of the Berkeley
SPICE3
simulator: R, C, L, controlled and independent sources, semiconductor device models (MOSFET Level 1, Bipolar junction transistor, Diode, Semiconductor resistor). The components have been intensively tested with more than 1000 test models and compared with results from the SPICE3 simulator. All test models give identical results in Dymola 7.4 with respect to the Berkeley SPICE3 simulator up to the relative tolerance of the integrators. This library allows detailed simulations of electronic circuits. Work on Level 2 SPICE3 models, i.e., even more detailed models, is under way. Furthermore, a preprocessor is under development to transform automatically a SPICE netlist into a Modelica model, in order that the many available SPICE3 models can be directly used in a Modelica model. (This library was developed by Fraunhofer Gesellschaft, Dresden). 
Modelica.Magnetic.FundamentalWave 
Library for magnetic fundamental wave effects in electric machines for the
application in three phase electric machines.
The library is an alternative approach to the Modelica.Electrical.Machines library.
A great advantage of this library is the strict object orientation of the
electrical and magnetic components that the electric machines models are composed of.
This allows an easier incorporation of more detailed physical effects of
electrical machines.
From a didactic point of view this library is very beneficial for students in the field
of electrical engineering. (This library was developed by Christian Kral and Anton Haumer, using ideas and source code of a library from Michael Beuschel from 2000). 
Modelica.Fluid.Dissipation 
Library with functions to compute convective heat transfer and pressure loss characteristics. (This library was developed by Thorben Vahlenkamp and Stefan Wischhusen from XRG Simulation GmbH). 
Modelica.ComplexMath 
Library of complex mathematical functions (e.g., sin, cos) and of functions operating
on complex vectors. (This library was developed by Marcus Baur from DLRRM, Anton Haumer, and HansJürg Wiesmann). 
The following new components have been added
to existing libraries:

The new design is based on the connectorSizing annotation that allows the convenient handling of an arbitrary number of input signals (e.g., the "And" block has 1,2,...,N inputs, instead of only 2 inputs in the Logical library). Additionally, the icons are smaller so that the diagram area is better utilized

The following existing components
have been improved in a
backward compatible way:
Modelica.Blocks.Sources.

New parameter "nperiod" introduced to define the number of periods for the signal type. Default is "infinite number of periods (nperiods=1). 
Modelica.Electrical.  
MultiPhase.*  All dissipative components have now an optional heatPort connector to which the dissipated losses are transported in form of heat. 
Machines.*  To all electric machines (asynchronous and synchronous induction machines, DC machines)
and transformers loss models have been added (where applicable): Temperature dependent resistances (ohmic losses) Friction losses Brush losses Stray Load losses Core losses (only eddy current losses but no hysteresis losses; not for transformers) As default, temperature dependency and losses are set to zero. To all electric machines (asynchronous and synchronous induction machines, DC machines) and transformers conditional thermal ports have been added, to which the dissipated losses are flowing, if activated. The thermal port contains a HeatPort for each loss source of the specific machine type. To all electric machines (asynchronous and synchronous induction machines, DC machines) a "powerBalance" result record has been added, summarizing converted power and losses.

(a) Optional filtering of opening signal introduced to model the delay time of the opening/closing drive. In this case, an optional leakageOpening can be defined to model leakage flow and/or to improve the numerics in certain situations. (b) Improved regularization of the valve characteristics in some cases so that it is twice differentiable (smooth=2), instead of continuous (smooth=0). 
Modelica.Fluid.Sources.  
FixedBoundary Boundary_pT Boundary_ph 
Changed the implementation so that no nonlinear algebraic equation system occurs, if the given variables (e.g. p,T,X) do not correspond to the medium states (e.g. p,h,X). This is achieved by using appropriate "setState_xxx" calls to compute the medium state from the given variables. If a nonlinear equation system occurs, it is solved by a specialized handler inside the setState_xxx(..) function, but in the model this equation system is not visible. 
Modelica.Media.Interfaces.  
PartialMedium  The min/max values of types SpecificEnthalpy, SpecificEntropy,

Modelica.Blocks library: "%name": width: 150 .. 150, height: 40, color: blue other text: height: 30, color: black 
Modelica.Math.Matrices  
QR  A Boolean input "pivoting" has been added (now QR(A, pivoting)) to provide QRdecomposition without pivoting (QR(A, false)). Default is pivoting=true. 
The following critical errors have been fixed (i.e., errors
that can lead to wrong simulation results):
Modelica.Electrical.Digital.Delay.  
InertialDelaySensitive  In order to decide whether the rising delay (tLH) or the falling delay (tHL) is used, the "previous" value of the output y has to be used and not the "previous" value of the input x (delayType = delayTable[y_old, x] and not delayType = delayTable[x_old, x]). This has been corrected. 
Modelica.Mechanics.MultiBody.Parts.  
BodyBox BodyCylinder 
Fixes ticket
#373:
The "Center of Mass" was calculated as normalize(r)*length/2. This is
only correct if the box/cylinder is attached between frame_a and frame_b.
If this is not the case, the calculation is wrong.
The has been fixed by using the correct formula: r_shape + normalize(lengthDirection)*length/2 
BodyShape BodyBox BodyCylinder 
Fixes ticket #300: If parameter enforceStates=true, an error occurred. This has been fixed. 
Modelica.Mechanics.Rotational.Components.  
LossyGear  In cases where the driving flange is not obvious, the component could lead to a nonconvergent event iteration. This has been fixed (a detailed description is provided in ticket #108 and in the attachment of this ticket). 
Gearbox  If useSupport=false, the support flange of the internal LossyGear model was connected to the (disabled) support connector. As a result, the LossyGear was "free floating". This has been corrected. 
Modelica.Fluid.Pipes.  
DynamicPipe  Bug fix for dynamic mass, energy and momentum balances for pipes with nParallel>1. 
Modelica.Fluid.Pipes.BaseClasses.HeatTransfer.  
PartialPipeFlowHeatTransfer  Calculation of Reynolds numbers for the heat transfer through walls corrected, if nParallel>1. This partial model is used by LocalPipeFlowHeatTransfer for laminar and turbulent forced convection in pipes. 
Modelica.Media.Interfaces.PartialLinearFluid  
setState_psX  Sign error fixed. 
Modelica.Media.CompressibleLiquids.  
LinearColdWater  Fixed wrong values for thermal conductivity and viscosity. 
The following uncritical errors have been fixed (i.e., errors
that do not lead to wrong simulation results, but, e.g.,
units are wrong or errors in documentation):
Modelica.Math.Matrices.LAPACK  
dgesv_vec dgesv dgetrs dgetrf dgetrs_vec dgetri dgeqpf dorgqr dgesvx dtrsyl 
Integer inputs to specify leading dimensions of matrices have got a lower bound 1 (e.g., lda=max(1,n))
to avoid incorrect values (e.g., lda=0) in the case of empty matrices. The Integer variable "info" to indicate the successful call of a LAPACK routine has been converted to an output where it had been a protected variable. 
The following

(Icon for release notes in documentation).
Version 3.1 is backward compatible to version 3.0 and 3.0.1, i.e., models developed with version 3.0 or 3.0.1 will work without any changes also with version 3.1.
Version 3.1 is slightly based on the Modelica Specification 3.1. It uses the following new language elements (compared to Modelica Specification 3.0):
The following new libraries have been added:
Modelica.Fluid  Components to model 1dim. thermofluid flow in networks of vessels, pipes, fluid machines, valves and fittings. All media from the Modelica.Media library can be used (so incompressible or compressible, single or multiple substance, one or two phase medium). The library is using the streamconcept from Modelica Specification 3.1. 
Modelica.Magnetic.FluxTubes  Components to model magnetic devices based on the magnetic flux tubes concepts. Especially to model electromagnetic actuators.

ModelicaServices is then used in the Modelica package. In this first version, the 3dim. animation with model Modelica.Mechanics.MultiBody.Visualizers.Advanced.Shape was moved to ModelicaServices. Tool vendors can now provide their own implementation of the animation.

Modelica.StateGraph.Interfaces.  
StateGraphRoot PartialCompositeStep CompositeStepState 
Replaced the wrong Modelica code "flow output Real xxx" by "Real dummy; flow Real xxx;". As a side effect, several "blocks" had to be changed to "models". 
PartialStep  Changed model by packing the protected outer connector in to a model. Otherwise, there might be differences in the sign of the flow variable in Modelica 3.0 and 3.1. 
Modelica.Utilities.Examples.

The following uncritical errors have been fixed (i.e., errors

the smoothOrder annotation. 
Modelica.Math.Matrices.  
eigenValues  Wrong documentation corrected (#162)

This Modelica package is provided under the Modelica License 2 and no longer under Modelica License 1.1. There are the following reasons why the Modelica Association changes from Modelica License 1.1 to this new license text (note, the text below is not a legal interpretation of the Modelica License 2. In case of a conflict, the language of the license shall prevail):
The following new components have been added
to existing libraries:
Electrical.Analog.Basic.  
M_Transformer  Transformer, with the possibility to choose the number of inductors. The inductances and the coupled inductances can be chosen arbitrarily. 
Electrical.Analog.Lines.  
M_OLine  Segmented line model that enables the use of multiple lines, that means, the number of segments and the number of single lines can be chosen by the user. The model allows to investigate phenomena at multiple lines like mutual magnetic or capacitive influence. 
Mechanics.Translational.Components.Examples.  
Brake  Demonstrates the usage of the translational brake component. 
Media.Interfaces.PartialMedium.  
ThermoStates  Enumeration type for independent variables to identify the independent
variables of the medium (pT, ph, phX, pTX, dTX). An implementation of this enumeration is provided for every medium. (This is useful for fluid libraries that do not use the PartialMedium.BaseProperties model). 
setSmoothState  Function that returns the thermodynamic state which smoothly approximates:
if x > 0 then state_a else state_b. (This is useful for pressure drop components in fluid libraries where the upstream density and/or viscosity has to be computed and these properties should be smooth a zero mass flow rate) An implementation of this function is provided for every medium. 
Media.Common.  
smoothStep  Approximation of a general step, such that the characteristic is continuous and differentiable. 
Media.UsersGuide.  
Future  Short description of goals and changes of upcoming release of Modelica.Media. 
Media.Media.Air.MoistAir.  
isentropicExponent  Implemented Missing Function from interface. 
isentropicEnthalpyApproximation  Implemented function that approximates the isentropic enthalpy change. This is only correct as long as there is no liquid in the stream. 
The following existing components
have been changed (in a
backward compatible way):
Mechanics.Rotational.Interfaces.  
PartialFriction  Improvement of friction model so that in certain situations the number of iterations is much smaller. 
Mechanics.Translational.Components.Examples.  
Friction  Added a third variant, where friction is modelled with the SupportFriction component. 
Mechanics.Translational.Components.  
MassWithStopAndFriction  Improvement of friction model so that in certain situations the number of iterations is much smaller.

Rewritten function in one statement so that it is usually inlined. 
Media.Interfaces.PartialLinearFluid.  
consistent use of reference_d instead of density(state  Change was done to achieve consistency with analytic inverse functions. 
Media.Air.MoistAir.  
T_phX  Interval of nonlinear solver to compute T from p,h,X changed from 200..6000 to 240 ..400 K. 
The following critical errors have been fixed (i.e., errors
that can lead to wrong simulation results):
Mechanics.MultiBody.Forces  
WorldTorque  Parameter "ResolveInFrame" was not propagated and therefore always the default (resolved in world frame) was used, independently of the setting of this parameter. 
WorldForceAndTorque  Parameter "ResolveInFrame" was not propagated and therefore
always the default (resolved in world frame) was used, independently
of the setting of this parameter. Furthermore, internally WorldTorque was used instead of Internal.BasicWorldTorque and therefore the visualization of worldTorque was performed twice. 
Mechanics.MultiBody.Sensors  
AbsoluteSensor  Velocity, acceleration and angular acceleration were computed by differentiating in the resolveInFrame frame. This has been corrected, by first transforming the vectors in to the world frame, differentiating here and then transforming into resolveInFrame. The parameter in the Advanced menu resolveInFrameAfterDifferentiation is then superfluous and was removed . 
AbsoluteVelocity  The velocity was computed by differentiating in the resolveInFrame frame. This has been corrected, by first transforming the velocity in to the world frame, differentiating here and then transforming into resolveInFrame 
RelativeSensor  If resolveInFrame <> frame_resolve and resolveInFrameAfterDifferentiation = frame_resolve, a translation error occurred, since frame_resolve was not enabled in this situation. This has been corrected. 
RelativeVelocity  The velocity has have been computed by differentiating in the resolveInFrame frame. This has been corrected, by first transforming the relative position in to frame_a, differentiating here and then transforming into resolveInFrame 
TransformRelativeVector  The transformation was wrong, since the parameters frame_r_in and frame_r_out have not been propagated to the submodel that performs the transformation. This has been corrected. 
Mechanics.Translational.Components.  
SupportFriction Brake 
The sign of the friction force was wrong and therefore friction accelerated instead of decelerated. This was fixed. 
SupportFriction  The component was only correct for fixed support. This was corrected. 
Media.Interfaces.  
PartialSimpleMedium PartialSimpleIdealGasMedium 
BaseProperties.p was not defined as preferred state and BaseProperties.T was always defined as preferred state. This has been fixed by Defining p,T as preferred state if parameter preferredMediumState = true. This error had the effect that mass m is selected as state instead of p and if default initialization is used then m=0 could give not the expected behavior. This means, simulation is not wrong but the numerics is not as good and if a model relies on default initial values, the result could be not as expected. 
The following uncritical errors have been fixed (i.e., errors
that do not lead to wrong simulation results, but, e.g.,
units are wrong or errors in documentation):
Blocks.Math.  
InverseBlockConstraint  Changed annotation preserveAspectRatio from true to false. 
Blocks.Sources.  
RealExpression IntegerExpression BooleanExpression 
Changed annotation preserveAspectRatio from true to false. 
Electrical.Analog.Basic.  
SaturatingInductor  Replaced nonstandard "arctan" by "atan" function. 
Modelica.Electrical.Digital.  
UsersGuide  Removed empty documentation placeholders and added the missing release comment for version 1.0.7 
Modelica.Mechanics.Translational.Components.  
MassWithStopAndFriction  Changed usage of reinit(..), in order that it appears only once for one variable according to the language specification (if a tool could simulate the model, there is no difference). 
Media.Interfaces.PartialSimpleMedium  
pressure temperature density specificEnthalpy 
Missing functions added. 
Extends from Modelica.Icons.ReleaseNotes
(Icon for release notes in documentation).
Version 3.0 is not backward compatible to previous versions. A conversion script is provided to transform models and libraries of previous versions to the new version. Therefore, conversion should be automatic.
The following changes are present for the whole library:
parameter Modelica.SIunits.Resistance R=1;Physical parameters, such as a resistance, mass, gear ratio, do not have a meaningful default and in nearly all cases, the user of the corresponding component has to provide values for such parameters. If the user forgets this, a tool cannot provide diagnostics, since a default value is present in the library (such as 1 Ohm for the resistance). In most cases the model will simulate but will give wrong results due to wrong parameter values. To improve this situation, all physical parameter declarations in the Modelica Standard Library have been changed, so that the previous default becomes a start value. For example, the above declaration is changed to:
parameter Modelica.SIunits.Resistance R(start=1);This is a backward compatible change and completely equivalent from the perspective of the Modelica language. It is, however, advised that tools will print a warning or optionally an error message, if the start value of a parameter is defined, but no value for the parameter is given via a modification. Furthermore, it is expected, that the input field of a parameter menu is empty, if no default equation is defined, but only a start value. This shows clearly to the modeler that a value has to be provided.
The following new components have been added
to existing libraries (note, the names in parentheses
are the new sublibrary names that are introduced in version 3.0):
Blocks.Examples.  
InverseModel  Demonstrates the construction of an inverse model. 
Blocks.Math.  
InverseBlockConstraints  Construct inverse model by requiring that two inputs and two outputs are identical (replaces the previously, unbalanced, TwoInputs and TwoOutputs blocks). 
Electrical.Machines.Utilities  
TransformerData  A record that calculates required impedances (parameters) from nominal data of transformers. 
Mechanics.MultiBody.Examples.Rotational3DEffects  
GyroscopicEffects ActuatedDrive MovingActuatedDrive GearConstraint 
New examples to demonstrate the usage of the Rotational library in combination with multibody components. 
Mechanics.MultiBody.Sensors

Mechanics.Translational(.Sources)  
Force2 LinearSpeedDependentForce QuadraticSpeedDependentForce ConstantForce ConstantSpeed ForceStep 
Force acting on 2 flanges Force linearly dependent on flange speed Force quadratic dependent on flange speed Constant force source Constant speed source Force step 
The following existing components
have been changed in a
nonbackward compatible way
(the conversion script transforms models and libraries
of previous versions to the new version. Therefore, conversion
should be automatic):
Blocks.Continuous.  
CriticalDamping  New parameter "normalized" to define whether filter is provided in normalized or nonnormalized form. Default is "normalized = true". The previous implementation was a nonnormalized filter. The conversion script automatically introduces the modifier "normalized=false" for existing models. 
Blocks.Interfaces.  
RealInput RealOutput 
Removed "SignalType", since extending from a replaceable class
and this is not allowed in Modelica 3. The conversion script removes modifiers to SignalType. 
RealSignal IntegerSignal BooleanSignal 
Moved to library ObsoleteModelica3, since these connectors
are no longer allowed in Modelica 3 (prefixes input and/or output are required). 
Blocks.Interfaces.Adaptors.  
AdaptorReal AdaptorBoolean AdaptorInteger 
Moved to library ObsoleteModelica3, since the models are not "balanced".
These are completely obsolete adaptors between the Real, Boolean, Integer signal connectors of version 1.6 and version ≥ 2.1 of the Modelica Standard Library. 
Blocks.Math.  
ConvertAllUnits  Moved to library ObsoleteModelica3, since extending from a replaceable class
and this is not allowed in Modelica 3. It would be possible to rewrite this model to use a replaceable component. However, the information about the conversion cannot be visualized in the icon in this case. 
Blocks.Math.UnitConversions.  
TwoInputs TwoOutputs 
Moved to library ObsoleteModelica3, since the models are not "balanced".
A new component "InverseBlockConstraints" is provided instead that has the same feature, but is "balanced". 
Electrical.Analog.Baisc.  
HeatingResistor  The heatPort has to be connected; otherwise the component Resistor (without heatPort) has to be used. cardinality() is only used to check whether the heatPort is connected. 
Electrical.MultiPhase.Examples.  
Changed the instance names of components used in the examples to more uptodate style.  
Electrical.Machines.  
Moved package Machines.Examples.Utilities to Machines.Utilities  
Removed all nonSIunits; especially in DCMachines parameter NonSIunits.AngularVelocity_rpm rpmNominal was replaced by parameter SIunits.AngularVelocity wNominal  
Changed the following component variable and parameter names to be more concise: Removed suffix "DamperCage" from all synchronous induction machines since the user can choose whether the damper cage is present or not.
RotorAngle ... RotorDisplacementAngle  
Interfaces.  Moved as much code as possible from specific machine models to partials to reduce redundant code. 
Interfaces.Adapter  Removed to avoid cardinality; instead, the following solution has been implemented: 
Sensors.RotorDisplacementAngle Interfaces.PartialBasicMachine 
Introduced parameter Boolean useSupport=false "enable / disable (=fixed stator) support" The rotational support connector is only present with useSupport = true; otherwise the stator is fixed internally. 
Electrical.Machines.Examples.  
Changed the names of the examples to more meaningful names. Changed the instance names of components used in the examples to more uptodate style.  
SMEE_Generator  Initialization of smee.phiMechanical with fixed=true 
Mechanics.MultiBody.  
World  Changed default value of parameter driveTrainMechanics3D from false to true. 3dim. effects in Rotor1D, Mounting1D and BevelGear1D are therefore taken into account by default (previously this was only the case, if world.driveTrainMechanics3D was explicitly set). 
Mechanics.MultiBody.Forces.  
FrameForce FrameTorque FrameForceAndTorque 
Models removed, since functionality now available via Force, Torque, ForceAndTorque 
WorldForce WorldTorque WorldForceAndTorque Force Torque ForceAndTorque 
Connector frame_resolve is optionally enabled via parameter resolveInFrame . Forces and torques and be resolved in all meaningful frames defined by enumeration resolveInFrame. 
Mechanics.MultiBody.Frames.  
length normalize 
Removed functions, since available also in Modelica.Math.Vectors
The conversion script changes the references correspondingly. 
Mechanics.MultiBody.Joints.  
Prismatic ActuatedPrismatic Revolute ActuatedRevolute Cylindrical Universal Planar Spherical FreeMotion 
Changed initialization, by replacing initial value parameters with
start/fixed attributes. When start/fixed attributes are properly supported in the parameter menu by a Modelica tool, the initialization is considerably simplified for the user and the implementation is much simpler. Replaced parameter "enforceStates" by the more general builtin enumeration stateSelect=StateSelection.xxx. The conversion script automatically transforms from the "old" to the "new" forms. 
Revolute ActuatedRevolute 
Parameter "planarCutJoint" in the "Advanced" menu of "Revolute" and of
"ActuatedRevolute" removed. A new joint "RevolutePlanarLoopConstraint" introduced that defines the constraints of a revolute joint as cutjoint in a planar loop. This change was needed in order that the revolute joint can be properly used in advanced model checking. ActuatedRevolute joint removed. Flange connectors of Revolute joint can be enabled with parameter useAxisFlange. 
Prismatic ActuatedPrismatic 
ActuatedPrismatic joint removed. Flange connectors of Prismatic joint can be enabled with parameter useAxisFlange. 
Assemblies  Assembly joint implementation slightly changed, so that
annotation "structurallyIncomplete" could be removed (all Assembly joint models are now "balanced"). 
Mechanics.MultiBody.Joints.Internal  
RevoluteWithLengthConstraint PrismaticWithLengthConstraint 
These joints should not be used by a user of the MultiBody library. They are only provided to builtup the MultiBody.Joints.Assemblies.JointXYZ joints. These two joints have been changed in a slightly not backward compatible way, in order that the usage in the Assemblies.JointXYZ joints results in balanced models (no conversion is provided for this change since the user should not have used these joints and the conversion would be too complicated): In releases before version 3.0 of the Modelica Standard Library, it was possible to activate the torque/force projection equation (= cuttorque/force projected to the rotation/translation axis must be identical to the drive torque/force of flange axis) via parameter axisTorqueBalance. This is no longer possible, since otherwise this model would not be "balanced" (= same number of unknowns as equations). Instead, when using this model in version 3.0 and later versions, the torque/force projection equation must be provided in the Advanced menu of joints Joints.SphericalSpherical and Joints.UniversalSpherical via the new parameter "constraintResidue". 
Mechanics.MultiBody.Parts.  
BodyBox BodyCylinder 
Changed unit of parameter density from g/cm3 to the SI unit kg/m3
in order to allow stricter unit checking. The conversion script multiplies previous density values with 1000. 
Body BodyShape BodyBox BodyCylinder PointMass Rotor1D 
Changed initialization, by replacing initial value parameters with
start/fixed attributes. When start/fixed attributes are properly supported in the parameter menu by a Modelica tool, the initialization is considerably simplified for the user and the implementation is much simpler. The conversion script automatically transforms from the "old" to the "new" form of initialization. 
Mechanics.MultiBody.Sensors.  
AbsoluteSensor RelativeSensor CutForceAndTorque 
New design of sensor components: Via Boolean parameters signal connectors for the respective vectors are enabled/disabled. It is not possible to automatically convert models to this new design. Instead, references in existing models are changed to ObsoleteModelice3. This means that these models must be manually adapted. 
CutForce CutTorque 
Slightly new design. The force and/or torque component can be
resolved in world, frame_a, or frame_resolved. Existing models are automatically converted. 
Mechanics.Rotational.  
Moved components to structured subpackages (Sources, Components)  
Inertia SpringDamper RelativeStates 
Changed initialization, by replacing initial value parameters with
start/fixed attributes. When start/fixed attributes are properly supported in the parameter menu by a Modelica tool, the initialization is considerably simplified for the user and the implementation is much simpler. Parameter "stateSelection" in "Inertia" and "SpringDamper" replaced by the builtin enumeration stateSelect=StateSelection.xxx. Introduced the "stateSelect" enumeration in "RelativeStates". The conversion script automatically transforms from the "old" to the "new" forms. 
LossyGear GearBox 
Renamed gear ratio parameter "i" to "ratio", in order to have a
consistent naming convention. Existing models are automatically converted. 
SpringDamper ElastoBacklash Clutch OneWayClutch 
Relative quantities (phi_rel, w_rel) are used as states, if possible
(due to StateSelect.prefer). In most cases, relative states in drive trains are better suited as absolute states. This change might give changes in the selected states of existing models. This might give rise to problems if, e.g., the initialization was not completely defined in a user model, since the default initialization heuristic may give different initial values. 
Mechanics.Translational.  
Moved components to structured subpackages (Sources, Components)  
Adaptions corresponding to Rotational  
Stop  Renamed to Components.MassWithStopAndFriction to be more concise. MassWithStopAndFriction is not available with a support connector, since the reaction force can't be modeled in a meaningful way due to reinit of velocity v. Until a sound implementation of a hard stop is available, the old model may be used. 
Media.  
constant nX constant nXi constant reference_X BaseProperties 
The package constant nX = nS, now always, even for single species media. This also allows to define mixtures with only 1 element. The package constant nXi=if fixedX then 0 else if reducedX or nS==1 then nS  1 else nS. This required that all BaseProperties for single species media get an additional equation to define the composition X as {1.0} (or reference_X, which is {1.0} for single species). This will also mean that all user defined single species media need to be updated by that equation. 
SIunits.  
CelsiusTemperature  Removed, since no SI unit. The conversion script changes references to SIunits.Conversions.NonSIunits.Temperature_degC 
ThermodynamicTemperature TemperatureDifference 
Added annotation "absoluteValue=true/false"
in order that unit checking is possible (the unit checker needs to know for a unit that has an offset, whether it is used as absolute or as a relative number) 
SIunits.Conversions.NonSIunits.  
Temperature_degC Temperature_degF Temperature_degRk 
Added annotation "absoluteValue=true"
in order that unit checking is possible (the unit checker needs to know for a unit that has an offset, whether it is used as absolute or as a relative number) 
StateGraph.Examples.  
ControlledTanks  The connectors of the ControlledTanks did not fulfill the new restrictions of Modelica 3. This has been fixed. 
Utilities  Replacing inflow, outflow by connectors inflow1, inflow2, outflow1, outflow2 with appropriate input/output prefixes in order to fulfill the restrictions of Modelica 3 to arrive at balanced models. No conversion is provided, since too difficult and since the nonbackward compatible change is in an example. 
Thermal.FluidHeatFlow.Sensors.  
pSensor TSensor dpSensor dTSensor m_flowSensor V_flowSensor H_flowSensor 
renamed to: PressureSensor TemperatureSensor RelPressureSensor RelTemperatureSensor MassFlowSensor VolumeFlowSensor EnthalpyFlowSensor 
Thermal.FluidHeatFlow.Sources.  
Ambient PrescribedAmbient 
available as one combined component Ambient Boolean parameters usePressureInput and useTemperatureInput decide whether pressure and/or temperature are constant or prescribed

available as one combined component VolumeFlow Boolean parameter useVolumeFlowInput decides whether volume flow is constant or prescribed 
ConstantPressureIncrease PrescribedPressureIncrease

Thermal.FluidHeatFlow.Examples.  
Changed the instance names of components used in the examples to more uptodate style.  
Thermal.HeatTransfer.(Components)  
HeatCapacitor  Initialization changed: SteadyStateStart removed. Instead
start/fixed values for T and der_T (initial temperature and its derivative). 
HeatCapacitor ThermalConductor ThermalConvection BodyRadiation TemperatureSensor RelTemperatureSensor HeatFlowSensor FixedTemperature PrescribedTemperature FixedHeatFlow PrescribedHeatFlow 
Moved components to subpackages: Components.HeatCapacitor Components.ThermalConductor Components.ThermalConvection Components.BodyRadiation Sensors.TemperatureSensor Sensors.RelTemperatureSensor Sensors.HeatFlowSensor Sources.FixedTemperature Sources.PrescribedTemperature Sources.FixedHeatFlow Sources.PrescribedHeatFlow 
Thermal.FluidHeatFlow.Examples.  
Changed the instance names of components used in the examples to more uptodate style. 
The following existing components
have been improved in a
backward compatible way:
Modelica.*  Parameter declarations, input and output function arguments without description
strings improved by providing meaningful description texts. 
Modelica.Blocks.Continuous.  
TransferFunction  Internal scaling of the controller canonical states introduced in order to enlarge the range of transfer functions where the default relative tolerance of the simulator is sufficient. 
Butterworth CriticalDamping 
Documentation improved and plots of the filter characteristics added. 
Electrical.Analog.Basic.  
EMF  New parameter "useSupport" to optionally enable a support connector. 
Icons.  
TranslationalSensor RotationalSensor 
Removed drawing from the diagram layer (kept drawing only in
icon layer), in order that this icon can be used in situations where components are dragged in the diagram layer. 
Math.Vectors.  
normalize  Implementation changed, so that the result is awalys continuous (previously, this was not the case for small vectors: normalize(eps,eps)). 
Mechanics.MultiBody.  
Renamed nonstandard keywords defineBranch, defineRoot, definePotentialRoot,
isRooted to the standard names: Connections.branch/.root/.potentialRoot/.isRooted.  
Frames  Added annotation "Inline=true" to all oneline functions (which should be all inlined). 
Mechanics.MultiBody.Parts.  
Mounting1D Rotor1D BevelGear1D 
Changed implementation so that no longer modifiers for connector
variables are used, because this violates the restrictions on "balanced models" of Modelica 3. 
Mechanics.Rotational.  
InitializeFlange  Changed implementation so that counting unknowns and equations is possible without actual values of parameters. 
Thermal.FluidHeatFlow.Interfaces.Partials.  
TwoPort  Introduced parameter Real tapT(final min=0, final max=1)=1 that defines the temperature of the heatPort between inlet and outlet. 
StateGraph.  
InitialStep InitialStepWithSignal Step StepWithSignal 
Changed implementation so that no longer modifiers for output
variables are used, because this violates the restrictions on "balanced models" of Modelica 3. 
The following critical errors have been fixed (i.e., errors
that can lead to wrong simulation results):
Electrical.Analog.Examples.  
CauerLowPassSC  Wrong calculation of Capacitor1 both in Rn and Rp corrected (C=clock/R instead of C=clock*R) 
Mechanics.MultiBody.Parts.  
Rotor1D  The 3D reaction torque was not completely correct and gave in some situations a wrong result. This bug should not influence the movement of a multibody system, but only the constraint torques are sometimes not correct. 
Mechanics.Rotational.  
ElastoBacklash  If the damping torque was too large, the reaction torque could "pull" which is unphysical. The component was newly written by limiting the damping torque in such a case so that "pulling" torques can no longer occur. Furthermore, during initialization the characteristics is made continuous to reduce numerical errors. The relative angle and relative angular velocities are used as states, if possible (StateSelect.prefer), since relative quantities lead usually to better behavior. 
Position Speed Accelerate Move 
The movement of the flange was wrongly defined as absolute;
this is corrected as relative to connector support. For Accelerate, it was necessary to rename RealInput a to a_ref, as well as the start values phi_start to phi.start and w_start to w.start. The conversion script performs the necessary conversion of existing models automatically. 
Media.Interfaces.  
PartialSimpleIdealGasMedium  Inconsistency in reference temperature corrected. This may give
different results for functions: specificEnthalpy, specificInternalEnergy, specificGibbsEnergy, specificHelmholtzEnergy.

that can lead to wrong simulation results):

Mechanics.MultiBody.Parts.

following cases (since vector r was not transformed
from frame_a to frame_b; note this special case occurs very seldom in practice):

PointMass  If a PointMass model is connected so that no equations are present to compute its orientation object, the orientation was arbitrarily set to a unit rotation. In some cases this can lead to a wrong overall model, depending on how the PointMass model is used. For this reason, such cases lead now to an error (via an assert(..)) with an explanation how to fix this.

The following errors have been fixed:
Modelica.Blocks.Tables.  
CombiTable1D CombiTable1Ds CombiTable2D 
Parameter "tableOnFile" determines now whether a table is read from
file or used from parameter "table". Previously, if "fileName" was not
"NoName", a table was always read from file "fileName", independently
of the setting of "tableOnFile". This has been corrected. Furthermore, the initialization of a table is now performed in a whenclause and no longer in a parameter declaration, because some tools evaluate the parameter declaration in some situation more than once and then the table is unnecessarily read several times (and occupies also more memory). 
Modelica.Blocks.Sources.  
CombiTimeTable  Same bug fix/improvement as for the tables from Modelica.Blocks.Tables as outlined above. 
Modelica.Electrical.Analog.Semiconductors.  
PMOS NMOS HeatingPMOS HeatingNMOS 
The DrainSourceResistance RDS had actually a resistance of
RDS/v, with v=Beta*(W+dW)/(L+dL). The correct formula is without
the division by "v". This has now been corrected. This bug fix should not have an essential effect in most applications. In the default case (Beta=1e5), the DrainSourceResistance was a factor of 1e5 too large and had in the default case the wrong value 1e12, although it should have the value 1e7. The effect was that this resistance had practically no effect. 
Modelica.Media.IdealGases.Common.SingleGasNasa.  
dynamicViscosityLowPressure  Viscosity and thermal conductivity (which needs viscosity as input) were computed wrong for polar gases and gas mixtures (i.e., if dipole moment not 0.0). This has been fixed in version 2.2.1. 
Modelica.Utilities.Streams.  
readLine  Depending on the Cimplementation, the stream was not correctly closed. This has been corrected by adding a "Streams.close(..)" after reading the file content.

(Icon for release notes in documentation).
Version 2.2 is backward compatible to version 2.1.
The following new libraries have been added:
Modelica.Media  Property models of liquids and gases, especially

Modelica.Thermal.FluidHeatFlow  Simple components for 1dim., incompressible thermofluid flow to model coolant flows, e.g., of electrical machines. Components can be connected arbitrarily together (= ideal mixing at connection points) and fluid may reverse direction of flow. 
The following changes have been performed in the Modelica.Mechanics.MultiBody library:
Extends from Modelica.Icons.ReleaseNotes
(Icon for release notes in documentation).
This is a major change with respect to previous versions of the Modelica Standard Library, because many new libraries and components are included and because the input/output blocks (Modelica.Blocks) have been considerably simplified:
The discussed changes of Modelica.Blocks are not backward compatible. A script to automatically convert models to this new version is provided. There might be rare cases, where this script does not convert. In this case models have to be manually converted. In any case you should make a backup copy of your model before automatic conversion is performed.
The following new libraries have been added:
Modelica.Electrical.Digital  Digital electrical components based on 2,3,4, and 9valued logic according to the VHDL standard 
Modelica.Electrical.Machines  Asynchronous, synchronous and DC motor and generator models 
Modelica.Math.Matrices  Functions operating on matrices such as solve() (A*x=b), leastSquares(), norm(), LU(), QR(), eigenValues(), singularValues(), exp(), ... 
Modelica.StateGraph  Modeling of discrete event and reactive systems in a convenient way using hierarchical state machines and Modelica as action language. It is based on JGrafchart and Grafcet and has a similar modeling power as StateCharts. It avoids deficiencies of usually used action languages. This library makes the ModelicaAdditions.PetriNets library obsolete. 
Modelica.Utilities.Files  Functions to operate on files and directories (copy, move, remove files etc.) 
Modelica.Utilities.Streams  Read from files and write to files (print, readLine, readFile, error, ...) 
Modelica.Utilities.Strings  Operations on strings (substring, find, replace, sort, scanToken, ...) 
Modelica.Utilities.System  Get/set current directory, get/set environment variable, execute shell command, etc. 
The following existing libraries outside of the Modelica standard library have been improved and added as new libraries (models using the previous libraries are automatically converted to the new sublibraries inside package Modelica):
Modelica.Blocks.Discrete  Discrete input/output blocks with fixed sample period (from ModelicaAdditions.Blocks.Discrete) 
Modelica.Blocks.Logical  Logical components with Boolean input and output signals (from ModelicaAdditions.Blocks.Logical) 
Modelica.Blocks.Nonlinear  Discontinuous or nondifferentiable algebraic control blocks such as variable limiter, fixed, variable and Pade delay etc. (from ModelicaAdditions.Blocks.Nonlinear) 
Modelica.Blocks.Routing  Blocks to combine and extract signals, such as multiplexer (from ModelicaAdditions.Blocks.Multiplexer) 
Modelica.Blocks.Tables  One and twodimensional interpolation in tables. CombiTimeTable is available in Modelica.Blocks.Sources (from ModelicaAdditions.Tables) 
Modelica.Mechanics.MultiBody  Components to model the movement of 3dimensional mechanical systems. Contains body, joint, force and sensor components, analytic handling of kinematic loops, force elements with mass, series/parallel connection of 3D force elements etc. (from MultiBody 1.0 where the new signal connectors are used; makes the ModelicaAdditions.MultiBody library obsolete) 
As a result, the ModelicaAdditions library is obsolete, because all components are either included in the Modelica library or are replaced by much more powerful libraries (MultiBody, StateGraph).
The following new components have been added to existing libraries.
Modelica.Blocks.Logical.  
Pre  y = pre(u): Breaks algebraic loops by an infinitesimal small time delay (event iteration continues until u = pre(u)) 
Edge  y = edge(u): Output y is true, if the input u has a rising edge 
FallingEdge  y = edge(not u): Output y is true, if the input u has a falling edge 
Change  y = change(u): Output y is true, if the input u has a rising or falling edge 
GreaterEqual  Output y is true, if input u1 is greater or equal than input u2 
Less  Output y is true, if input u1 is less than input u2 
LessEqual  Output y is true, if input u1 is less or equal than input u2 
Timer  Timer measuring the time from the time instant where the Boolean input became true

ConstantTorque  Constant torque, not dependent on speed (acts as load torque) 
ConstantSpeed  Constant speed, not dependent on torque (acts as load torque)

The following bugs have been corrected:
Modelica.Mechanics.MultiBody.Forces.  
LineForceWithMass Spring 
If mass of the line force or spring component is not zero, the mass was (implicitly) treated as "mass*mass" instead of as "mass" 
Modelica.Mechanics.Rotational.  
Speed  If parameter exact=false, the filter was wrong (position was filtered and not the speed input signal)
