How to run a simulation with powergui as continuous when the model involves a current measurement unit

I have modelled a PV array interfaced with a DC DC boost converter circuit. I want to run the simulation with powergui as continuous. My model involves a voltage measurement unit and a current measurement unit, whose help documentation states that they work only when powergui is in phasor mode. I have however seen a model in the matlab help for powergui, with the same component but powergui set to continuous. How do I achieve the same ?
The model also involves a MOSFET switch which gets turned off if the powergui is phasor.

Documentation says if you set Simulation type to either phasor or Discrete phasor, it will enable a parameter in current measurement block which will allow you to set output signal type from your current measurement block.
However, the parameter 'Output signal' will not be available if you select Simulation type as continuous or discrete, and you will get instantaneous signal with respect to time as output.
Since you have switching devices in your model, avoid using phasor simulation mode.

I used MATLAB 2020b version. I want to create a boost converter at the Simulink but I can't find powergui in library browser. When I search 'powergui' at the library browser in Simulink it shows 'no results found for powergui'. Somebody please help me:(
