removePrivateData

Remove private data elements from operating point

Description

example

opNew = removePrivateData(op) returns a copy of the OperatingPoint object op, with hidden private data removed from the data tree hierarchy. Private data corresponds to the Simscape™ language file members with the attribute ExternalAccess = none.

Simscape language members with the attribute ExternalAccess = none are not observable by definition. Therefore, you cannot see them in the operating point data. Use hasPrivateData to determine whether an operating point data tree contains private data elements. Then use removePrivateData to remove the hidden elements, if necessary.

In general, including private data in an operating point data tree helps with model initialization. However, if you are having trouble initializing a model from a saved operating point and wonder whether the issue is in the hidden private data, try using removePrivateData to remove the hidden elements.

Open the Permanent Magnet DC Motor example model and create an OperatingPoint object named op using the Start values from the model:

ssc_dcmotor
op = simscape.op.create(gcs, 'Start')
op =

Create a new operating point, op1, by removing private data from op:

Operating point in the workspace, specified as an OperatingPoint object.

Output Arguments

New OperatingPoint object, which is a copy of the original OperatingPoint object, op, with private data elements removed from the data tree hierarchy. You can remove elements recursively, that is, the name of the new OperatingPoint object, opNew, can be the same as the name of the original OperatingPoint object, op.
