WSMPlot is being phased out in favor of SystemModelPlot, which was introduced experimentally in Version 11.3.


shows preferred plots from the WSMSimulationData object sim.


shows stored plot "name".


generates a plot of the variables vi in sim.


plots variables from several simulations.


plots from a new simulation of "mmodel".

Details and Options

  • WSMPlot[,{tmin,tmax}] plots from tmin to tmax.
  • WSMPlot[{"mmodel",args},] generates simulation data using WSMSimulate["mmodel",args].
  • WSMPlot[conn,] takes simulation data from a WSMSimulationConnection.
  • WSMPlot[sim,{{"v1","p1",di},},] plots variables vi and sensitivity bounds when parameter pi varies 100di%. »
  • The shortest unique model name mmodel can be used where WSMNames["*.mmodel"] gives a unique match.
  • A list of stored plots for WSMSimulationData sim is available with sim["PlotNames"].
  • Variables vi can be given as strings or using DotName.
  • WSMPlot has the same options as ListLinePlot, with the following additions and changes:
  • AxesLabelAutomaticindicate units on axis
    MeshNonemesh points to draw on each line
    PlotLegends Automaticuses variable names vi
    TargetUnits Automaticplot in display units from model
  • Events in a simulation are indicated in a plot with Mesh->"Events". »
  • Possible settings for TargetUnits include:
  • "DisplayUnit"display units converted to common units
    "IndividualDisplayUnit"display units without conversion
    "Unit"base units converted to common units
    "IndividualUnit"base units without conversion
    unitexplicit unit
  • "Unit" and "DisplayUnit" attempt to convert compatible quantities to a common unit.
  • "DisplayUnit" and "IndividualDisplayUnit" convert to a unit specified in the model for plot purposes.
