This benchmark example incorporates the following hybrid dynamic system simulation phenomena: state events, state update during event iteration, state invariant event iteration, loop of discrete changes, and removing/adding of state vector variables. In addition, the extensive continuous and discrete dynamics require powerful modeling formalisms for each of these domains, as well as efficient and scalable treatment of the hybrid system characteristics.
