To run the simulation using your custom powertrain
Click the Run icon (
) in the VI-CarRealTime menu bar. Alternatively, from Test, select Run Selected Events.
The VI.PTW (VI-CarRealTime Python Task Window) opens, followed by the VI-Animator window (see the following figure). Your simulation starts automatically.
Note: If the simulation does not behave as expected (for example, it does not look as though the simulation is using your custom powertrain), the messages in the VI.PTW (VI-CarRealTime Python Task Window) may indicate why the simulation failed. For example, if you did not set the simulation to use your plugin solver properly, you would see a warning message stating that there were problems initializing the user library (see the following figure).
