Based on Simulink Fundamentals, this course is for aerospace engineers new to system and algorithm modeling in Simulink®. It teaches attendees how to apply basic modeling techniques and tools to develop Simulink block diagrams.
- 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
