Information

This information is part of the Modelica Standard Library maintained by the Modelica Association.

The Limiter block passes its input signal as output signal as long as the input is within the specified upper and lower limits. If this is not the case, the corresponding limits are passed as output.

The parameter homotopyType in the Advanced tab specifies the simplified behaviour if homotopy-based initialization is used:

  • NoHomotopy: the actual expression with limits is used
  • Linear: a linear behaviour y = u is assumed (default option)
  • UpperLimit: it is assumed that the output is stuck at the upper limit u = uMax
  • LowerLimit: it is assumed that the output is stuck at the lower limit u = uMin

If it is known a priori in which region the input signal will be located, this option can help a lot by removing one strong nonlinearity from the initialization problem.

Parameters (5)

uMax

Value:

Type: Real

Description: Upper limits of input signals

uMin

Value: -uMax

Type: Real

Description: Lower limits of input signals

strict

Value: false

Type: Boolean

Description: = true, if strict limits with noEvent(..)

homotopyType

Value: Modelica.Blocks.Types.LimiterHomotopy.Linear

Type: LimiterHomotopy

Description: Simplified model for homotopy-based initialization

limitsAtInit

Value: true

Type: Boolean

Description: Has no longer an effect and is only kept for backwards compatibility (the implementation uses now the homotopy operator)

Connectors (2)

u

Type: RealInput

Description: Connector of Real input signal

y

Type: RealOutput

Description: Connector of Real output signal
