This page documents an experimental feature. You can help out by testing it and reporting your experiences.

Boundary detection works under IDA to detect when, as moving forward in time, a point comes when a conditional expression changes value.

Possible boundaries include

  • real-valued relations, such as t < t_1 or T > T_sat
  • boolean-valued relations, such as motor_running = (have_power AND motor_switch_on)

As integration time progresses, logic-valued relations can only change value when somehow triggered by changes in real-valued relations. Boolean-valued relations at that point then be re-evaluated using LRSlv to precedence-order the logical relations from the current model state.

Boolean-valued relations case use the truth-value of real-valued relations using the SATISFIED(relname,tolerance) function.
