Hi
I have started using sumulink recently to use reinforcement learning toolbox. In Matlab examples, there is not any delay unit but in my simulation I got loop error and it will be fixed after I use delay block. The training can be excuted now but the learning is not succesful and I am wondering whether this delay is the reason or not because it is not used in matlab examples. I have screenshot of before and after using delay block. Errors were shown when there is no delay.

A delay block may be necessary to break algebraic loops or to rely on observations from previous time steps (see e.g. this example). I would try to identify which specific observation causes the issue - no need to add a delay to all of them.
