Version_3_2_2Version 3.2.2 (April 3, 2016) 
This information is part of the Modelica Standard Library maintained by the Modelica Association.
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:
Modelica.Blocks.Examples  
NoiseExamples  Several examples to demonstrate the usage of the blocks in the new sublibrary Blocks.Noise. 
Modelica.Blocks.Interfaces

Modelica.ComplexBlocks.ComplexMath  
TransferFunction  This block allows to define a complex transfer function (depending on frequency input w) to obtain the complex output y. 
Modelica.ComplexBlocks.Sources  
LogFrequencySweep  The logarithm of w performs a linear ramp from log10(wMin) to log10(wMax), the output is the decimal power of this logarithmic ramp.

The difference to the existing ElastoBacklash component is that an event is generated when contact occurs and that the contact torque changes discontinuously in this case. For some user models, this variant of a backlash model leads to significantly faster simulations.

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.
