Refine factor


Specify how many points to generate between time steps to refine the output.

Category: Data Import/Export


Default: 1

  • The default refine factor is 1, meaning that no extra data points are generated.

  • A refine factor of 2 provides output midway between the time steps, as well as at the steps.


Simulink® software ignores this option for discrete models. This is because the value of data between time steps is undefined for discrete models.


This parameter is enabled only if you select Refine output as the value of Output options.
