Calculate dissipated power losses and return time series data

`lossesCell = elec_getPowerLossTimeSeries(node)`

`lossesCell = elec_getPowerLossTimeSeries(node,startTime,endTime)`

`lossesCell = elec_getPowerLossTimeSeries(node,startTime,endTime,intervalWidth)`

calculates
dissipated power losses for blocks in a model, based on logged simulation
data, and returns the time series data for each block. `lossesCell`

= elec_getPowerLossTimeSeries(`node`

)

Before you call this function, you must have the simulation log variable in your current workspace. Create the simulation log variable by simulating the model with data logging turned on, or load a previously saved variable from a file.

The `elec_getPowerLossTimeSeries`

function
calculates dissipated power losses for each block that has a `power_dissipated`

variable.
All blocks in the Semiconductor Devices library, as well as some other
blocks, have an internal variable called `power_dissipated`

,
which represents the instantaneous power dissipated by the block.
Some blocks have more than one `power_dissipated`

variable,
depending on their configuration. For example, the N-Channel
MOSFET block has separate `power_dissipated`

logging
nodes for the MOSFET, the gate resistor, and for the source and drain
resistors if they have nonzero resistance values. The function sums
all these losses and provides the power loss value for all of the
blocks as functions of time.

If `node`

is the name of the simulation log
variable, then the table contains the data for all the blocks in the
model that dissipate power (that is, contain at least one `power_dissipated`

variable).
If `node`

is the name of a node in the simulation
data tree, then the table contains the data only for the blocks within
that node.

to `endTime`

.
If `startTime`

is equal to `endTime`

,
the interval is effectively zero and the function returns the instantaneous
power for the time step that occurs at that moment. If you omit these
two input arguments, the function returns data over the whole simulation
time.

omit the `intervalWidth`

, or set it to 0, the function
returns the instantaneous data, without averaging. If you omit all
three optional arguments, the function returns the instantaneous data
over the whole simulation time.
