I am using Python 3.6.7 XML-RPC library to interface with PLECS 4.2.5 standalone. I am looping through multiple "steady-state analysis" simulations which will show only one (though configurable) period at the end of the simulation once steady-state has been reached.
I'd like to export the scope data to a .CSV file for post-processing. Although there is a way to export scope data when scripting within the PLECS standalone, there doesn't seem to be a way to do so outside the PLECS scripting environment such as through the XML-RPC interface of Python.
In the PLECS standalone scripting environment, the command is:
plecs('scope', 'scopePath', 'ExportCSV', 'fileName')
I would have thought that executing the following command through XML-RPC would have worked but it doesn't.
server.plecs.scope('scopePath', 'ExportCSV', 'fileName')
The closest command that DOES work is just replacing the 'ExportCSV' command above with 'SaveTraces'. However, this generates a .TRACE file that can only be interpreted by PLECS scope and isn't readable in a typical text editor for post-processing.
