Modeling Physical Systems with Simscape

Course Highlight

This one-day course focuses on modeling systems in several physical domains and combine them into a multidomain system in the Simulink® environment using Simscape™. 


Topics include:

  • Creating models in various physical domains, such as electrical, mechanical, and hydraulic

  • Interpreting Simscape diagrams

  • Combining Simulink models and Simscape models

  • Modeling energy transfer between different physical domains

  • Creating user-defined Simscape components

Who Should Attend
