New potentiometer model

Hi,

If you look at this design (https://www.systemvision.com/design/test-potentiometers-0) it shows you how to use both the original (time - variable) potentiometer model, and also the new one that you can just specify the "wiper_setting" as a constant parameter on the model. The value of wiper_setting must be between 0.0 and 1.0, where 0.0 means the wiper is at the bottom of the potentiometer (at the "p2" terminal), and 1.0 means it is at the top (at the "p1" terminal).

Hope this helps!

Mike
