The selection of one OLGA file initiates the import of the Catalogue. with the ‘Parameters’ table and an empty ‘variable list’ table.• Button ‘Add new TPL line’: o If the ‘Parameters’ sheet does not exist. the variables of interest are copied (from column C) and paste in the ‘Variable List’ table (column A). o A pop-up window is shown to select a file. From the Catalogue worksheet ‘TrendCatalog’. it is created. Page 3 .

Page 4 . 5 How to Compare different Profiles on the same Sheet Use argument 'H' for all the cases except the first one. 4 How to Make Charts • • • Add a name in the ChartName column of the Parameter table Add the same name in the Chart1 column in the Variable list table Import the case(s) Charts can be either embedded on the worksheet ‘Charts’ (option m in Options column) or on a separate chart sheet.o Example of a populated variable list: • • Button ‘Import current case’: Import the current line of the Parameters table Button ‘Import all cases’: Import all the lines but the coloured ones (The lines where the cell in column ‘type’ is shaded in colour are not processed).

Both parametric and case studies can be combined on the same sheet. with the code "KW' in row 9. Page 6 .8 How to Prepare Parametric Runs Control panel: Button 'Generate parametric file' 9 How to Make Case Studies The layout is the same as for the parametric runs.

write the keywords in row 3 and the formula with the corresponding value in row 4. use a star in the line(s) of interest. color the other lines: In the RESULT SHEET.In the PARAMETER table. Control panel: Button 'Import Multi Case study' Page 7 .

g. TRIG returns the first time step after one threshold is reached. VAL_INT returns the interpolated value at a given time. VAL returns the first value after a given time. LAST returns the last value. and in either row 3. An example of ‘special function’ case is shown below. written in the column of interest.10 How to Use the ‘Special Functions’ The ‘special functions’ are used to detect one condition in a trend (e. Page 8 . The general syntax is ‘KEYWORD a’. TRIG_INT returns the interpolated time when one threshold is reached. when a set point is reached). 5 or 7 (see example). KEYWORD is one of the following: • • • • • TRIG TRIG_INT VAL VAL_INT LAST The argument ‘a’ is a numerical value.
