Using simulink or simscape?

1 view (last 30 days)
Hi people,
quick question:
using simulink I found I am able to draw circuits both using "simulink" components (Power system library) and using "simscape" components (those drawed in blue).
So far (but I begun using these features just a couple of days ago) I don't understand the differences using one set of components instead of the other.
Could someone explain to me why I should prefer one over the other?
Thank you :)

Hello Chris,
Not sure which verison of MATLAB you are using.
This is due to Power electronics library would have been developed before the Simscape libraries.. Simscape contains all the component simulation libraries under one umbrella.( fluid, power systems, multibody, electronics.)
I suggest to use Simscape..as that's the future version will concentrate on.
regards,
Joseph

so you're telling me there's no differences in accuracy of simulation, it's just about a kind of re-organization of Matlab, let's say.
For sure if I start to use simscape components I would need to use those S-PS and PS-S blocks for the conversion of signals too, so there must be something more about simscape elements.
I am using R2017b. Strange is that you can't see this info since I selected the version while I was typing the tags etc.
