The RTDS Simulator can be used to playback captured waveform data stored in ASCII data files at an arbitrary sample rate in the same manner as a real time play back system. Typically, the GTNET PLAYBACK model is used when the amount of playback data exceeds the memory storage capability of the GPC/PB5 processor.
The GTNET PLAYBACK component provides this functionality by employing a GTNET (or GTNETx2) peripheral and a Windows PC based file server. File sizes of 100’s of MB are supported allowing waveforms with high sample rates to be played back for an extended time period. The playback data must be stored in an ASCII file with a .txt filename extension.
