Multiple Configuration Sets in a Model

A model can include many different configuration sets. This capability is useful if you want to compare the difference in simulation output after changing the values of several parameters. Attaching additional configuration sets allows you to quickly switch the active configuration.

  1. To create additional configuration sets in your model, in the Model Explorer, select your model node in the Model Hierarchy pane and do one of the following:

    • Right-click the model node and select Configuration > Add Configuration.

    • Expand the model node and select the Configurations node. In the Contents pane, right-click an existing configuration set. In the context menu, select Copy. Right-click the Configurations node or right-click in the Contents pane, and select Paste.

  2. To import a previously saved configuration set, right-click the model node and select Configuration > Import. In the Import Configuration From File dialog box, select a configuration file.

  3. To modify the newly added configuration set, in the Model Hierarchy pane, select the Configurations node. In the Contents pane, right-click the configuration and select Open. Modify any parameters in the Configuration Parameters dialog box.

  4. To make the new configuration set the active configuration, in the configuration set context menu, select Activate. In the Contents pane, the new configuration set name is now displayed as (Active).

  5. To simulate your model using a different configuration set, switch the active configuration by repeating step 4.
