Model Attributes

Specify and query model characteristics such as coefficients, labels, and units

Model properties are the data fields that store all information about a dynamic system model. Data stored in model properties includes model dynamics, such as transfer-function coefficients, state-space matrices, and time delays. Access these properties to extract or change data about model dynamics. You can also specify metadata about the model such as input and output names or units.
