How to make a Monte Carlo analysis in Open Modelica

##### Title

##### Question

Dear Forum,

I'm a newby in Open Modelica. It seems as far as I see that there isn't any built-in way to perform a Monte Carlo analysis in OM.

I mean to define tolerances (e.g. Uniform, Normal etc...) to some parameters and then run a Monte Carlo analysis (e.g. 1000 runs) and check the effect of the variation to a given signal.

Do you have any simple example (e.g. simple RC filter) on how to make it?

I do appreaciate your suggestions.

Thanks

Sorry, at present statistical libraries seem to be available only on commercial basis. Hopefully in the future (don't know when), OM will have an interface to Scilab or R or both. When that happens all required statistical functions will be available in OM.

Thank you.

Actually I've read this <a href="https://modelica.org/events/modelica2008/Proceedings/sessions/session5k.pdf" target="" title="link">link</a> where they explain how to generate a randomic number for a Uniform distribution defining a "Function". I tried to define it in Open Modelica but it seems I cannot add Functions to a given schematic (Model). Is there anything I'm doing wrong or misunderstood from the link above?

Thanks,

Knot
