The purpose of the equation section is to establish the mathematical relationships among a component’s variables, parameters, inputs, outputs, time, and the time derivatives of each of these entities. Topics on this page provide detailed information on defining component equations and the related tasks.

The purpose of the equation section is to establish the mathematical relationships among a component’s variables, parameters, inputs, outputs, time and the time derivatives of each of these entities.
This example shows implementation for a simple algebraic system.
This example shows how you can access global simulation time from the equation section.
You can specify conditional equations by using
Textbooks often define certain equation terms in separate equations, and then substitute these intermediate equations into the main one.
You can use the
tablelookup function in the
section of the Simscape™ file to interpolate input values based on a set of data points in a one-dimensional, two-dimensional, or three-dimensional table.
assert construct to implement run-time error and warning messages for a custom block.
Specify additional equations to be executed during model initialization only.
Use Simscape functions to reuse expressions in equations and member declarations of multiple components.
Example of using Symbolic Math Toolbox™ software to solve the physical equations, generate code in the format appropriate for the Simscape language equation section, and incorporate the generated code into the equation section of a component file.
