Background and Aims

Matlab and Simulink have become a defacto standard for system modelling, simulation and control It is assumed that you know how to use these tools and develop Matlab and Simulink programs on this MSc. Over the next two weeks, were going to have a rapid introduction to Matlab and Simulink covering: Introduction to Matlab and help! Matrix programming using Matlab Structured programming using Matlab System (and signal) simulation using Simulink Modelling and control toolboxes in Matlab

Note that were not covering everything to do with Matlab and Simulink in these 4*2 hour lectures Also, after every lecture block in this module, there is a 1 hour lab scheduled programming is a practical activity

Matlab Programming Environment

Matlab (Matrix Laboratory) is a dynamic, interpreted, environment for matrix/vector analysis Variables are created at run-time, matrices are dynamically re-sized, User can build programs (in .m files or at command line) using a C/Java-like syntax Ideal environment for model building, system identification and control (both discrete and continuous time Wide variety of libraries (toolboxes) available

Starting and Running Simulink

Type the following at the Matlab command prompt >> simulink The Simulink library should appear Click File-New to create a new workspace, and drag and drop objects from the library onto the workspace. Selecting Simulation-Start from the pull down menu will run the dynamic simulation. Click on the blocks to view the data or alter the run-time parameters

Signals and Systems in Simulink

Two main sets of libraries for building simple simulations in Simulink: Signals: Sources and Sinks Systems: Continuous and Discrete

EE-M110 EFIS, W1 06-07


Basic Simulink Example

Copy sine wave source and scope sink onto a new Simulink work space and connect. Set sine wave parameters modify to 2 rad/sec Run the simulation: Simulation - Start Open the scope and leave open while you change parameters (sin or simulation parameters) and re-run Many other Simulink demos

Day 1: Laboratory
Remember Change directory to your local filespace so that your work is saved Turn on the diary on to save the commands and results from the lab session to a file for future reference Questions 1. Use the help and lookfor commands and look at the normal Matlab help section in the pull down menu (F1). How does the sin() function work? 2. Evaluate expressions such as 7*8/9, 8^2, 6+5-3 3. Using the in-built Matlab functions, evaluate sin(0), sin(pi/2), abs(-3) 4. Using the editor, write a Matlab script to solve the quadratic equation 2x2 -10x + 12 = 0 5. Evaluate, using a for loop, the first twenty numbers of the Fibonacci series xn = xn-1 + xn-2, x0 = 1, x1 = 1 6. Create the two vectors [1 2 3], [4 5 6] and calculate their inner product 7. Create the 3*3 matrix A = [1 2 3; 4 5 6; 7 8 9] and the column vector b = [1 2 3], and multiply the two together A*b. 8. Solve the equation A*x = b, where A and b are given in (6) 9. Modify (8), so that you neglect the 3rd row & column of information. 10. http://www.facstaff.bucknell.edu/maneval/help211/exercises.html

Day 2: Laboratory
1. 2. 3. 4. Write a function that returns the two roots of a quadratic equation, given the three arguments a, b and c. Test the function from the command line Write a function that returns the mean and standard deviation of a vector of numbers (input vector). While Matlab supplies the mean() and std() functions, try just using the sum() and length() functions. Write a function that reverses the order of letters in a string, and returns the new string. Use the eval() Matlab function to evaluate strings such as: exp1 = 5*6 + 7; Note this, and feval(), is very useful for dynamic programming Use a cell array to store a list of expressions, stored as strings. Then use eval() and a for loop to iterate over the expressions and evaluate them. Create two simple data structures to modify your solution to (1). Use one data structure to pack the parameters of the quadratic equation into a single variable, and use another to return the roots inside a single data structure Create the vector 0:pi/20:2*pi and use it to sample the sin() function. Plot the results and edit the figure window to put labels on the figure. Save the figure (.fig) and export a .jpg file. Use the meshgrid() function to sample a 2 dimensional input space between 0 and 2p, then use the data to sample the function sin(x1)*cos(x2). Plot the results using the mesh() function. Create a GUI that prompts the user for a number and then displays double that number next to the entered value. Start Simulink and using a sin() source and a scope sink, view the signal over 10 seconds. Change the frequency of the sin() source and again compare the results. Next change the simulation length. Build the first order system H(s) = 1/(1+3s) in the model and pass a sin() signal through the system. Make sure you run the simulation for a long enough time for the transients to die down and the system to settle. Replace the first order system in (6) with the second order system, what is the difference when the system settles down H(s) = 1/(1+2s+s^2).
