4.7.5. Rectangular TimeSeriesΒΆ

timeSeries('Rectangular', tag, tStart, tEnd, '-factor', factor=1.0)

This command is used to construct a TimeSeries object in which the load factor is constant for a specified period and 0 otherwise, i.e.

\[\begin{split}\lambda = f(t) = \begin{cases} cFactor, & tStart<=t<=tEnd\\ 0.0, & otherwise \end{cases}\end{split}\]
tag (int) unique tag among TimeSeries objects.
tStart (float) Starting time of non-zero load factor.
tEnd (float) Ending time of non-zero load factor.
factor (float) Load factor. (optional)
