‚ÄčSimulink for Systems Modeling, Simulation and Control

Join a free webinar where presenters from MathWorks will show through live demonstrations and examples how MATLAB & Simulink can help you become more effective in your work.  To learn more, please visit Simulink for Systems Modeling, Simulation and Control

  • Date:     Wednesday, July 15th
  • Time:    1:00 p.m.-2:30 p.m. ET
  • Venue:  WebEx Event

‚ÄčThis session introduces how to get started designing control systems with Simulink using a DC motor as a physical modeling example. We create models of dynamic systems and then show how you can design feedback controllers, by tuning a PID controller for the motor. You will see how to test the controller through simulation and generate C code for deployment to an embedded microprocessor.

Some of the highlights include:

  • Introduction to Model-Based Design
  • Various ways of modeling a DC Motor
    • Mathematical Modeling with Simulink
    • Physical Modeling with Simulink and Simscape along with closed loop simulation
    • Parameter Estimation
  • Control system design with PID tuning
  • Automatic Code Generation and deployment to Embedded Targets
  • Resources for teaching and learning with Simulink
