    By applying the energy conservation principle, mechatronic systems can be converted to electric circuits, and be modeled in an analog circuit simulator. For rapid prototyping of mechatronic systems, an extensive component model library is required. At VTT Automation, a multitechnical library has been developed for PSpice, a well-known, relatively inexpensive circuit simulator. The library consists of electrical, electro-mechanical, mechanical and hydraulic components and contains models at different abstraction and accuracy levels. A schematic editor has been customized to allow user-friendly input of multitechnical systems.
