In the Simulation Data Inspector tool, you can use the Compare Runs tab to compare all signal data from two different simulation runs. To compare two runs:
Open the Simulation Data Inspector tool. See Open the Simulation Data Inspector Tool.
Select the Compare Runs tab.
From the Run 1 and Run 2 drop-down lists, select two different runs.
Select the Options button to specify the signal alignment.
The Simulation Data Inspector aligns signals according to Align By and Then By parameters. For more information on signal alignment, see How the Simulation Data Inspector Tool Aligns Signals.
Click the Compare button. The Comparison Results table lists all signals from Run 1 with a result. In this example, the comparison results of the aligned signals did not match.
The Simulation Data Inspector only compares signals from Run 1 that are aligned with a signal from Run 2. If a signal from Run 1 did not align with a signal from Run 2, then the Run 1 signal is listed in the Comparison Results table with a warning .
To modify the relative tolerance and absolute tolerance, add the Abs Tol 1 column to the Signal Browser table. Double-click the corresponding fields for a signal and type in a value.
To see a signal that is within the acceptable tolerance across two simulation runs, set the absolute tolerance in column Abs Tol 1 to 1.0.
To plot a signal, in the plot column select the option button for q, rad/sec. The Signals graph displays the signal data for the two runs. The Difference graph displays the difference and tolerance values.
For information on manipulating the graph, see Customize the Simulation Data Inspector Interface.
To create a report of the results, see Create Simulation Data Inspector Report.
