MultiPortalCrane - Energy Analyzer

Creator

Hello,

In my model I have a few groups of MultiportalCrane and I try to obtain energy consumption results.

Is it some possible to simulate energy consumption for MultiportalCrane ?
I can not see standard energy functions in the portal object window.
Could anyone help me to find easy/some solution for this issue ?

Hello Jsza,

 

the MultiportalCrane library is based on the Transporter object, which is not equipped with the Energy functionality. Therefore this evaluation is not available.

 

Regards,

Peter

Hello Peter,

 

 

OK, I understood. Direct functions are not available

but my question was, are there same other possibility ?

 

In SimTalk methods  for MultiPortalcrane I tray to use f.g.:

------------

 

.........

when 7 then
  
   ENhook.EnergyCurrentState:="Operational";
   portalObj.moveHook( 2);
   ENhook.EnergyCurrentState:="Off";

 

........

------------

 

where ENhook is the  "Standard" station as "motor" imitation

but it doesn't work correctly.


Could you or anybody suggest line of tought in this subject ?

 

regards

you could use in the hook-object (tolley, portal) an observer for resWorking --> switch the power input of the energy state operational of a "dummy" object (powerInputOperational)

I have made a little example: you can detect the movement of the hook on the trolley object, the movement of the tolley on the portal and the portal movement on the crane. I have inserted observers in the trolley and portal in the subfolder MaterialFlow. For configuring the crane I have written a method, this you need only call once. The energy values i have defined in the dummy-objects (standby and working).
