Regular design meeting:
Andreas J: We need non-nomative text to explain the difference of different clock types.
This should not describe the individual types individually but compare their differences and abilities and disadvantages.
Torsten S.: We also need examples / reference FMUs for this. This goes hand in hand

I also miss a clear definition when a periodic clock ticks the first time.
2.1.8 Periodic Clock Ticks states
"the base clock starts at the start of the simulation tstart or when the controller is switched on plus an offset time toffset"
A clock must have a well defined start time so their cannot be a OR condition for its start. And what does "when the controller is switched on" mean? When is the controller switched on?

Section 2.2.4 has a more precise definition but I still miss a clear definition of the "offset". An offset to what? The simulation start time? The time 0 of the independent variable?, ...
