Calculate dissipated power losses and return time series data

`lossesCell = elec_getPowerLossTimeSeries(node)`

`lossesCell = elec_getPowerLossTimeSeries(node,startTime,endTime)`

`lossesCell = elec_getPowerLossTimeSeries(node,startTime,endTime,intervalWidth)`

calculates dissipated power losses for blocks in a model, based on logged simulation data,
and returns the time series data for each block. `lossesCell`

= elec_getPowerLossTimeSeries(`node`

)

Before you call this function, you must have the simulation log variable in your current workspace. Create the simulation log variable by simulating the model with data logging turned on, or load a previously saved variable from a file.

The `elec_getPowerLossTimeSeries`

function calculates dissipated
power losses for each block that has a `power_dissipated`

variable. All
blocks in the Semiconductor Devices library, as well as some other blocks, have an internal
variable called `power_dissipated`

, which represents the instantaneous
power dissipated by the block. Some blocks have more than one
`power_dissipated`

variable, depending on their configuration. For
example, the N-Channel MOSFET block has separate
`power_dissipated`

logging nodes for the MOSFET, the gate resistor, and
for the source and drain resistors if they have nonzero resistance values. The function sums
all these losses and provides the power loss value for all of the blocks as functions of
time.

If `node`

is the name of the simulation log variable, then the table
contains the data for all the blocks in the model that dissipate power (that is, contain at
least one `power_dissipated`

variable). If `node`

is the
name of a node in the simulation data tree, then the table contains the data only for the
blocks within that node.

)`startTime`

to `endTime`

. If
`startTime`

is equal to `endTime`

, the interval is
effectively zero and the function returns the instantaneous power for the time step that
occurs at that moment. If you omit these two input arguments, the function returns data over
the whole simulation time.

`intervalWidth`

. If you omit the `intervalWidth`

, or
set it to 0, the function returns the instantaneous data, without averaging. If you omit all
three optional arguments, the function returns the instantaneous data over the whole
simulation time.
