 April 18, 2004, 07:46 Re: Time average value of a UDS #4 thomas Guest   Posts: n/a hello, The Data sampling for Time statistics should not be very difficult to compute via UDF. Just need 2 variables: - A: one to store your UDS value at each time step. - B: a second one to store the number of time step (= to the number of UDS values store in the first variable). - your time average is A/B That can be done using a DEFINE_EXECUTE_AT_END (with an UDMI inside) and the command C -> '=+' for each variable. Post-treating the UDMI will give you your UDS time average. Hope this help, Thomas
