Is Wufi Pro compatible with Matlab or Python to handle large iterations?

Post by Jacqueline T. » Tue Feb 04, 2020 4:40 pm -1100

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if it is possible to run Wufi Pro simulations using an external program, like Matlab or Python?

I developed a model that generates ASCII files, to use in Wufi Pro as an air source. I need to run a large number of simulations, and each simulation needs to be iterated between my model and Wufi.

So I was wondering if it is possible to run Wufi Pro using something like Matlab or Python, so I can automate a large number of simulations?

Thanks a lot!

Jacqui

Dear Jacqui,

you can run ready made simulations by command line. For that see the program help of WUFI.
But it is not possible to edit the projects by external sources.
We are working on a tool for that, but this will need some more time before we will release that.

Hi Christian,

Thanks a lot for the quick respond.

I saw the Batch Jobs section in the Wufi help. I was now wondering if Wufi can automatically export results (in my case cavity temperatures on monitoring position) to a ASCII-file after simulating? This way I can just reconnect the results file, then externally automate to change the first input file (in my case air source) and run the simulation again. Maybe...

Thanks
Jacqui

Hi Jacqui,
yes, ASCII-export is possible in the batch mode. See the -v option.
