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 1-dim. thermo-fluid 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 stream-concept from Modelica Specification 3.1. |
Modelica.Magnetic.FluxTubes | Components to model magnetic devices based on the magnetic flux tubes concepts. Especially to model electro-magnetic actuators. Nonlinear shape, force, leakage, and Material models. Material data for steel, electric sheet, pure iron, Cobalt iron, Nickel iron, NdFeB, Sm2Co17, and more. |
ModelicaServices | New top level package that shall contain functions and models to be used in the Modelica Standard Library that requires a tool specific implementation. ModelicaServices is then used in the Modelica package. In this first version, the 3-dim. animation with model Modelica.Mechanics.MultiBody.Visualizers.Advanced.Shape was moved to ModelicaServices. Tool vendors can now provide their own implementation of the animation. |

The following existing
components have been improved in a backward compatible way:
Modelica. | |
Blocks Mechanics StateGraph |
Provided missing parameter values for examples (these parameters had only start values) |

Resistor, Conductor, VariableResistor, VariableConductor | Conditional heatport added for coupling to thermal network. |

Modelica.StateGraph. | |
Examples | Introduced "StateGraphRoot" on the top level of all example models. |
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. | |
expression | Changed local variable "operator" to "opString" since "operator" is a reserved keyword in Modelica 3.1 |
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. | |
Many models | Removed wrong usages of annotations fillColor and fillPattern in text annotations (#155, #185). |
Modelica.Electrical.Machines | |
All machine models | The conditional heatports of the instantiated resistors (which are new in Modelica.Electrical.Analog and Modelica.Electrical.MultiPhase) are finally switched off until a thermal connector design for machines is implemented. |
Modelica.Media.Air.MoistAir | |
saturationPressureLiquid sublimationPressureIce saturationPressure |
For these three functions, an error in the
derivative annotation was corrected. However, the
effect of this bug was minor, as a Modelica tool was allowed to
compute derivatives automatically via the smoothOrder
annotation. |
Modelica.Math.Matrices. | |
eigenValues | Wrong documentation corrected (#162) |
