How can I assign a time characteristic to a generator using Python script?
Define a variable that contains a generator object and use CreateObject() method on it. It is assumed, that there are already characteristics available in the corresponding subfolder of the operational data library.
charFold = app.GetProjectFolder('chars') #get folder, where characteristics are normally stored
chars = charFold.GetContents('*.ChaTime') #get list of all available characteristics
sms = app.GetCalcRelevantObjects('*.ElmSym') #get a list with all generators
for sm in sms: #for each generator
char = sm.CreateObject('ChaRef','pgini') #create a characteristic reference object for a certain parameter
char.typ_id = chars #link the first (as example) characteristic of the list to the reference object
