3. Levels of use There are three different #ays to use SIMULINK& the most interactive #ay is to control the simulation from the menu bar& and to vie# the behavior of the system #ith the Scopes or 2raphs. This method is simple to use& 3uick to learn& and can provide fast results. The second #ay is to use the built in simulation and analysis function from the command line. This method is not as interactive as the first method but provides greater fle+ibility. 2etting the results of simulation into the M)TL)( #orkspace allo#s further analysis and data visuali/ation using M)TL)(4s built in graphics tools. The most comple+ and fle+ible #ay to use SIMULINK is to access a model4s S function directly. 5very SIMULINK model is available in M)TL)( as an S function that embodies the dynamical behavior of the system. Simulation of SIMULINK models involves the numerical integration of sets of ordinary differential e3uations. SIMULINK provides a number of integration algorithms for the simulation of such e3uations. The appropriate choice of method and the careful selection of simulation parameters are important considerations for obtaining accurate results. ) simulation can be started from either the command line or the simulation menu. )ll of the methods use the same arguments and menu parameters.

Simulation #rom the (enu ) simulation can be run by selecting Start from the Simulation menu. Set the simulation parameters in the control panel dialog bo+& #hich is displayed by selecting Parameters from the Simulation menu. The 6ontrol 7anel dialog bo+ has fields in #hich you can enter numbers or any legal M)TL)( e+pression& for e+ample& the variables tstart, t#inal, minstep, maxstep, and #inal #hich can be defined in the M)TL)( #orkspace. The return variables 8t&+&y9 are used to put the time& state& and output tra:ectories into M)TL)( #orkspace. The start and stop times for the simulation are set in variables tstart and t#inal. The integration parameters #inal, minstep and maxstep control the relative local error& minimum step si/e& and ma+imum step si/e of the simulation. 6ertain operations can be performed interactively during the simulation. ;or e+ample the parameters of a block can be changed provided this does not cause a change in the number of states& inputs or outputs of that block< any of the simulation parameters can be changed & e+cept return variables and the start time< the simulation algorithm can be changed< for discrete blocks you can change the sampling time. =ou can click on a line to see its output on a floating scope. )n unconnected scope is called a floating scope.

Initial conditions are defined in the vector +%. These conditions override the initial conditions set in the blocks. Specifying no lefthand arguments automatically plots the outputs or the state tra:ectories. ) simulation can be run from an m file allo#ing parameters in the blocks to be iteratively changed. )ll of the integration algorithms have identical calling synta+ *e.g. instead of linsim euler& rk1>& rk.$& adams or gear respectively,. *ie+ing output tra,ectories The output tra:ectories from SIMULINK can be plotted by Scope or 2raph blocks& or by return variables and the M)TL)( plotting commands& or by To 0orkspace blocks and M)TL)( plotting commands. 4.

Its synta+ is or setAparam*name& parameter& value, setAparam*name& parameter& value&parameter1&value1C,

Specific block parameters vary #ith each type of block. The names and effects of each block4s specific parameters can be found in the entry for that block.
