Command ElementPlantState is a container for Solver Variables that is used to generate a linear representation of a model about an operating point.

Class Name



The linear representation is used for both eigenvalue analysis and state matrix generation. Use PlantState to define a set of states used in linearization. Often the choice of state variables is determined by the solver. With PlantState (or Pstate), you can define a preferred set of states corresponding to what is usually experimentally measured.
