I have a similiar problem, wanting to tune a filter based on sNp-Files. I tried a list-sweep with the file-names as the list elements:
The equation block, after activating it, seems unfortunately not to accept string-like elements, even when in single, or double quotes:
When activating the sNp-element with the variable file name, in the example above X3, the simulator complains not finding the touchstone file:
If I activate the sweep-block the following error occures without quotes around the file names:
If I put the file name in quotes the same error as for the equation block occures.
For testing/improving this use case I attached a QucsStudio package sNp_sweep_demo.qucs.
QucsStudio packages can be imported and opened as follows:
1. Extract the package file:
2. Double click on the project, then double click on the schematic.
A sweep-block could also be, an even better (?), solution for this open point. Maybe a possible implementation approach could be that the Tuning-Slider steps through an internal library index?
An additional, but slightly different, motivation of having sNp-file names as variables is e.g. for symmetrical filter structures. Thus, modifying a symmetrical filter element would yield in changing a single variable, instead of chaning all instances of the same component.
Hope, that there will be a solution in the future. Or any hint for a workaround would be appreciated.
