Hello,
I am trying to solve a systems of nonlinear ODE using ODE15s but I keep getting an error after about 29 seconds and I can't figure out what is causing the error.
see a screen shot of the error.
What could be the likely cause of this error.

@Walter Roberson Thank you so much for the recommendation on how to pass additional variables to the ode*().
I have removed all the global variables and I have re-written my function as shown below.
In0 = [loc.lat; loc.lon; In.T_gas; In.T_film; In.M_gas; In.Uz; In.Z];
[t, output] = Balloondynamics(tspan,In0,wind, DATE, I, B);
function [time, dxdt] = dynamics(tspan,y0,wind, DATE, I, B)
[time, dxdt] = ode23(@solve_ode,tspan,y0);
function dxdt = solve_ode(t,y)
%% TRANSFER VALUES FROM y VARIABLE TO THE ACTUAL VARIABLE NAMES
lat = y(1);
lon = y(2);
T_gas = y(3);
T_film = y(4);
M_gas = y(5);
Uz = y(6);
Z = y(7);
[t,y']
....
end
end
I am a step closer to solving my next challenge.
So, my wind data for 1 hour is about 6.5 G and loading it takes a lot of time. Idealy, I will like to run my simulation using 1 week worth of wind data. This would mean, discarding the wind data after 1 hour simulation time (3600 seconds) and loading the next hour wind data.
e.g. load new wind data after every 3600 seconds.
I can read the wind data one after the other but I am not sure how to pass it to the ode function.
However, I was able to pass the multiple wind data to my own Runge Kutta function.

The computed solution might be "nan" or "inf" only. Briefly speaking the size mismatch.

Thank you for your input @Sulaymon Eshkabilov
I initially thought that maybe one of the computed solution is "nan" or infinity, so I tried to debug the code just before it crashed and I discovered that all the computed solutions were all real numbers.
