Hello,
I am fairly new to matlab and have a problem I can't figure out. The following script belongs to a system of a floatating device that is tethered to a motor on the seafloor. The system should describe the dynamics of the floater going from 0 m depth to -1000 m (charging) and from -1000 to 0 m (discharging), when it reaches the surface(0 m) the F_t (the force on the cable) becomes larger than the K (which is the buoyancy minus the weight). However I can't seem to figure out how to work out the if statements for the floater reaching the surface and to then change the F_t and F_d for the system going down( this is charging).
Could someone help me out with this?
Thanks

You can only use this example when using numeric solvers.
