elapsed(sec) returns the simulation time in seconds (sec) that has elapsed since the activation of the associated state.

The elapsed operator resets the counter for sec to 0 each time the associated state reactivates.

At the entry and during actions of the state, y is assigned the length of time that the state has been active.

    y = elapsed('sec');
