Select the continuous update method for models that respond to both continuous and discrete mode changes. Use Mealy charts to model finite state machines whose output is a function of current input and the current state. Use Moore charts to model finite state machines whose output depend on only the current state.
Simulate systems that exhibit modal behavior in continuous time.
Define continuous-time variables and their derivatives.
Create charts that implement Mealy and Moore state machine semantics.
Use best practices for implementing Mealy semantics in charts.
Use best practices for implementing Moore semantics in charts.
Achieve equivalent chart behavior when you change state machine types.
Specialized semantics impact the way that a function initializes persistent data.
