The Measurements view on the right-hand side of Simulation Center lists measurements for the current plot window. To show the Measurements view, choose View ▶ Measurements. There are two kinds of measurements in the Measurements view: measurements at a specific point in time, given by plot markers on the time axis, and measurements in a time interval. Plot markers on the time axis are used to specify the beginning and end of a time interval.
At a measurement time, the amplitude, at that time, of all plot curves is listed. For a measurement interval, the following information is shown:
Adding Measurement Times and Intervals
To add a new measurement time or interval, double-click the Add... entry in the Measurements view. This will bring up the Add Measurements at dialog.
The Add Measurements at dialog can be used to define a new measurement time or interval.
The Add Measurements at dialog can be used to add both kinds of measurements—for a specific point in time, by adding a new plot marker at the desired time; and for a time interval, by adding a plot marker for the beginning and end, by specifying a literal time value or by selecting an existing plot marker in the combo box.
Alternatively, Ctrl+click and drag the time axis to add a measurement time interval interactively. It is also possible to add individual plot markers as described in the plot marker section.
Edit Measurement Times and Intervals
To change the time value for a measurement time and thereby the plot marker, double-click the time in the Measurements view and enter the desired time value. To remove a plot marker, right-click it in the Measurements view and select Delete. Note this will also remove any measurement interval that is defined by that plot marker.
It is also possible to edit individual plot markers as described in the plot marker section.
