Get an overview of Simulink® modeling and simulation capabilities.
Smart Systems drive the technology of daily life.
But how do you implement smart systems efficiently, and with high quality?
For example, a smart wind turbine adapts to wind conditions to optimize power generation.
To make this happen, you need to control blade pitch and yaw, determine gear train sizing, and match electrical demand.
These interconnected components need to be designed together. With Simulink, you can understand and analyze complex systems by simulating block diagrams.
You get your model to simulate by simply pressing the play button.
By stepping back and forth through the simulation you can understand the system behavior and identify errors early.
Simulink’s state-of-the-art solvers support the simulation of a broad range of analog, digital, mixed signal, and multi-rate systems.
You can configure your model to have just the right amount of detail for your task. For example, you can use an ideal actuator model to determine sizing requirements, and then switch to a model with hydraulic components to design your embedded software.
You can compare the performance of your algorithm as it evolves to meet your specifications.
Simulink add-on products provide additional capabilities for Model-Based Design.
You can achieve design efficiency using tools specific to controls, signal processing, and communications applications.
From the model, you can generate code to prototype and test in real-time, and deploy onto your embedded system.
Throughout this development process, you continuously verify and validate the design.
Model-Based Design with Simulink – it’s transforming the way engineers work.
