Hi, Is it possible to use PLECS models within MATLAB if I don't have legitimate PLECS license?

I don't have legitimate PLECS Standalone license. I have legitimate version of MATLAB. I have PLECs model of switches, so wanted to know that is it possible to use PLECS models within MATLAB/ Simulink.

PLECS comes in two versions- Standalone and Blockset for use with MATLAB/Simulink. The latter version requires a license from us (separate from MATLAB) for full operation including changing and saving models, but you are able to use the free PLECS Viewer license if you have a developed PLECS model available you want to open. If you just have thermal descriptions (.xml files) from a semiconductor vendor, you will need to request a trial license at or purchase a full license to build these into a circuit model. I suspect this previous sentence is what is really relevant in your case.
