Where are the linear regulators in ADIsimPE?

I am interested in simulating some linear regulators including the ADM7154, ADM7150, ADP7182, and ADP1740/1741. So off I went and downloaded the linear regulator excel spreadsheet tool. I am impressed by its capabilities. But it doesn't show any plots of efficiency, PSRR, ripple, or temperature.

 

So then I downloaded ADEsimPE and tried to simulate it myself. I had no luck finding the SIMPLIS or SIMetrix model for any of the above parts.

 

Then I read in the ADEsimPE user's guide that I should be able to click a single button and have my design exported to ADEsimPE. But I could not find this button in the spreadsheet. So dead end there.

 

Ironically, there are linear regulators from LTI.

 

Why can't I find any linear regulator models in ADEsimPE? Am I just being dumb and looking in the wrong place?

 

Thanks for your time.
