Generate DLL from Simulink model

243 views (last 30 days)
Hallo everybody,
I am about to start working on an interface between Simulink modules and GH BLADED, software tailored to simulate the dynamic behavior of wind turbines. Within Simulink, I plan to develop some control strategies. This control model should be then ported as DLL to BLADED and actually command the reaction of the turbine to external inputs.
I'd appreciate knowing if any of you may address me to the easier procedure to generate DLL out of a Simulink model. At the time of writing, I do not have a clear idea about the best way to go.
Perhaps, it would be an option to generate a .tlc file, suited only for BLADED, exactly as it happens with LabView (but LabView already supports such a tlc file, BLADED so far does not).
I really thank you in advance for considering my request.
Kindest regards, FPe

Hello Sven,
I try to do the same job as you. However, I have various difficulties. Have you succeeded? do you have any documents that I can read or there is a documented process?
Could you help me? Please
Thank you for your time.

Hello Sven,
Were you able to resolve your SIMULINK-DLL-PSCAD issues? I'd like to know more as I am having similar problems. Thanks.

You can use ert_shrlib.tlc if you have the Embedded Coder product to generate generic DLLs from your Simulink model. The relevant documentation is here: Shared Object Libraries.

Hi everyone,
I would like to generate DLL from Simulink model (which is basically a controller). To do so, I have selected generic real time target (grt.tlc) from modal configuration parameters and build the model. Afterall, It has successfuly generated c files and directories.
Now, I would like to write a wrapper file to allow it to be called from external functions. For that I need grt_main.c file, and according to attached documentation (simulink_dll.pdf)It can be found in ($MATLABHOME)\rtw\c\grt directory. However, I am not able to find updated grt_main.c file inside this directory and It shows only previous files. So could you please provide me some suggestions?
Thank you so much in advance.
best regards, Tushar

There is a Simulink controller design example to create DLL for GH Bladed and OpenFAST in github, see

Hi Ivo, thanks for the link. This seems to be tailored for an earlier version of Bladed. Are you aware if something has been made for later vesions of Bladed such as v4.10?
Hello lvo
Actually i am facing problem to generate .DLL form the model from above link , enenthough model is build successfully. In build directory some .c and.h files were generated, after that how we would gnerate .dll ?
