Use of periodic average with the RT box

0 votes


I am using PLECs (standalone version 4.2.3, 64 bits for windows) with the RT box. 

I want to see the average value of a signal, but when I add the Periodic Average block I get the next error: The following components use the value of absolute time. This may cause overflow problems when a program runs for an indefinite time. I was wondering if there is a way of overcoming this issue.

Hi Cristina,

If you must use components that use absolute time on the RT Box, from the General tab of the PLECS Coder Options menu, set the Usage of absolute time parameter to either ignore or warning. The default option is set to error.
