Sum Block: Round or Rectangular? 7

Working in technical support, I see a lot of Simulink models from users. I have realized that many users do not know how to, or do not take the time to configure the ports of the Sum block. For... read more >>

Zero-Crossing Detection… what are your options? 8

When using Simulink variable-step solvers, zero-crossing detection is very useful to capture events accurately. However for some equations, configuring zero-crossing detection can be... read more >>

Implementing a PID Controller on an Arduino Board 20

This week my colleague Pravallika is back to continue her motor control story!

In my previous post, we saw how to estimate continuous transfer functions with System Identification Toolbox. We… read more >>

Time to Convert to Variant Subsystems 16

If you are a user of Configurable Subsystems, it is time to start thinking about making the switch to Variant Systems. Simulink Variants provide increased functionality over Configurable... read more >>

Where is the Reverse Multi-port Switch Block? 2

I recently noticed requests for a block implementing a behavior that might be called "Reverse Multiport Switch". You can find a few request like that on MATLAB Answers here and here. In my... read more >>

What Is Simulation? 5

This week we are taking a break from Simulink features and capabilities to take a step back and look at the history of simulations. What Is Simulation? Sometimes it is good to take a step back... read more >>

Conditional Execution 12

As we all know, in Simulink there are always multiple ways to implement a functionality. One situation where I often hesitate when choosing an implementation is conditional execution. I will share... read more >>

Estimating Continuous-Time Transfer Functions with System Identification Toolbox 9

Today guest blogger Pravallika describes how she used new features of the System Identification Toolbox to design a controller for a DC motor Any controls engineer knows that the key to... read more >>

Model-Based Design of a Dicycle 6

The other day I found this video: If you watch carefully, you will see around 1:50 that they used Simulink to design their controller. So for this week's post, I thought it would be... read more >>

Model-Based Design Dilemma 15

I am currently working on a model and I have a dilemma. There are two ways I could model my system. I need you to tell me which approach is best and why. I need your help! The Goal I am... read more >>
