​Course Highlight

This two-day course is for engineers who are new to system and algorithm modeling and design validation in Simulink®. It demonstrates how to apply basic modeling techniques and tools to develop Simulink block diagrams.

Topics include:

• Creating and modifying Simulink models and simulating system dynamics

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

• Modifying solver settings for simulation accuracy and speed

• Building hierarchy into a Simulink model

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

If your application is signal processing or communications, please refer to the Simulink for Signal Processing course.

Who Should Attend

Engineers who are new to the SIMULINK environment.
