MATLAB & Simulink


Comprehensive Simulink

Course Highlight

This three-day comprehensive hands-on course package is especially designed for beginners new to SIMULINK. Beginning with an introduction to SIMULINK environment, the course will first provide the essential knowledge required to build basic modeling techniques and tools to developing SIMULINK block diagrams. Participants will be provided with a working understanding of system and algorithm modeling and design validation in SIMULINK. 

The last part of the course shall cover effective system modeling techniques to improve user's ability to model using SIMULINK and highlight which tools are most appropriate for certain applications. 


Topics include:

  • Creating and modifying Simulink models and simulating system dynamics

  • Modeling continuous-time, discrete-time, and hybrid system

  • Modifying solver settings for simulation accuracy and speed

  • Building hierarchy into a Simulink model

  • Creating reusable model components using sbsystems, libraries, and model references

  • Automating modeling tasks

  • Calling MATLAB code from Simulink
