Model Configuration Parameters: Data Import/Export

The Data Import/Export category includes parameters for configuring input data for simulation (for example, for Inport blocks) and output data (for example, from Outport blocks).

ParameterDescription

Input

Loads input data from a workspace before the simulation begins.

Initial state

Loads the model initial states from a workspace before simulation begins.

Time

Saves simulation time data to the specified variable during simulation.

States

Saves state data to the specified variable during a simulation.

Output

Saves signal data to the specified variable during simulation.

Final states

Saves the model states at the end of a simulation to the specified variable.

Format

Select the data format for saving states, output, and final states data.

Limit data points

Limit the number of data points to export to the MATLAB® workspace.

Decimation

Specify decimation factor, N, for logging such that only every N points are logged.

Save complete SimState in final state

At the end of a simulation, Simulink® saves the complete set of states of the model, including logged states, to the specified MATLAB variable.

Signal logging

Globally enable or disable signal logging for the model.

Data stores

Globally enable or disable logging of Data Store Memory block variables for the model.

Log Dataset data to file

Log data to MAT-file.

Output options

Select options for generating additional output signal data for variable-step solvers.

Refine factor

Specify how many points to generate between time steps to refine the output.

Output times

Specify times at which Simulink software should generate output in addition to, or instead of, the times of the simulation steps taken by the solver used to simulate the model.

Single simulation output

Enable the single-output format of the sim command.

Logging intervals

Set intervals for logging

Record logged workspace data in Simulation Data Inspector

Specify whether to send logged data to the Simulation Data Inspector when a simulation pauses or completes.

These configuration parameters are in the Advanced parameters section.

Dataset signal format

Format for Dataset elements.
