Editor's Note: This file was selected as MATLAB Central Pick of the Week

This submission contains an interactive GUI for navigating and plotting Simscape simulation data. You can navigate the Simscape logging object using a tree browser, and the data is plotted for you automatically. This makes it easier to plot the different physical quantities in your network without using sensors. To use this file, simply pass the Simscape logging object to the function:
>> ssc_explore(simlog)
This submission also contains a function that lists the components that generated zero crossings and indicate locations in the Simscape language code where the zero crossing was generated. To use this file, simply pass the Simscape logging object to the function:
>> ssc_printzcs(simlog)

To learn more about ssc_printzcs, view the comments within the file:
>> help ssc_printzcs
