AE 383 System Dynamics Fall 2004 O. Tekinalp 1 Introduction to Simulink Simulink is the extension of Matlab to program dynamic system simulations using blocks. The approach is quite similar to the block diagram approach employed in automatic control systems discipline. To construct a simulation we need at least the following: 1. Inputs to the simulations. Quite a number of inputs are defined in the Sources library. 2. Definition of the system. There are many blocks in the libraries to help define a dynamic system. However, the handiest blocks may be found in Continuous , Nonlinear , Functions & Tables , and Signals & Systems . 3. Displaying and recording the outputs of the simulations. These may be found in Sinks . Simulink programs are constructed through the following basic steps: You start a new simulation program by selecting “ New ” menu item from “ File ” menu of the Simulink. Simulink is programmed by dragging and dropping simulink blocks to the new simulink window. This window is may be saved in a file for later use.
