    retain simulation trace Reply

    Hi Forum,

    I'm using Pspice/Capture to model a solar panel.  I'm using some reasonable complicated simulation traces to analyse the system.   What is frustrating is each time I adjust a parameter or the simulation profile, I have to re-input the formula for each trace.

    Is there anyway to automatically generate the same trace(s) each time I run the simulation?

    Thanks in advance



     I'm using Orcad v16.5 lite

    Yes. You can achieve this using any one of the following methods:

    1.     Define traces expression as “macros”.  Use Trace>macro command for same. Once these are defined, they can be used in same or other designs.

    2.     Set the simulation profile to show last set of traces automatically, when next time DAT file is opened up. This would automatically load all traces expression you configured in last session. This can be done Edit Profile>probe Window (TAB)>Select Last plot

    3.     You can store your current display setting as reusable display setup, using Windows>Display Control menu. Once stored you can reuse them in same of different projects.

    Hope this helps
