Hi,

> I have just started studying WSM and the Modelica language by implementing the simple pendulum model (class) es. described on p.33 of Peter Fritzson's book  Introduction to "Modeling and Simulation of Technical and Physical Systems with Modelica". The code (pendulum equation written as a DAE) is:

Just a followup to my recent post: you can use manual state selection 
(dynamic state selection is one of the tricks that Dymola uses to get 
this right) to get correct solutions with WSM like this:

model DAEExample
   constant Real PI=3.14159265358979;
   parameter Real m=1,g=9.81,l=0.5;
   Real F;
   Real x(start=0.5,stateSelect=StateSelect.always);
   Real y(start=0);
   Real vx(start=0);
   Real vy(start=0);
equation
   m*der(vx) = -x/l*F;
   m*der(vy) = -y/l*F - m*g;
   der(x) = vx;
   der(y) = vy;
   x^2 + y^2 = l^2;
end DAEExample;

hth,

albert
