I have the trial version of SystemModeler. I'm trying to model a simple electronic filter circuit. I was able to get a model working showing the spectrum of this filter with Electronic Workbench in about 15 minutes. Then I decided to try SystemModeler to see if it could also do this model. I was hoping I could use some of the Mathematica manipulate and plot routines to see how changing some of the components modified the spectrum. This has not been easy and I have yet to get a spectrum out of it after several weeks of trying. What one would normally do is to use a voltage source that sweeps through a defined range of frequencies to get the spectrum. There is no source like this in SystemModeler that I have been able to find, and I've spent a lot of time looking. The closest I have gotten is to get a step response which could be converted to a spectrum with a Fourier transform. However, I don't see any way to get to a transform in SystemModeler. This system is hard to use. It requires first setting up the model, then running a simulation, then finally going into Mathematica. This is three different programs. The routines in the Mathematica part seem to be limited. Maybe there is a way to get the simulation into a useable form, but I'm running out of patience. I don't plan to purchase this program.
