MATLAB and Simulink Training

Course Details

This course (formerly known as Simulink for System and Algorithm Modeling) is for engineers new to system and algorithm modeling in Simulink®. It teaches attendees how to apply basic modeling techniques and tools to develop Simulink block diagrams.

Topics include:

  • Creating and modifying Simulink models and simulating system dynamics
  • Modeling continuous-time, discrete-time, and hybrid systems
  • Modifying solver settings for simulation accuracy and speed
  • Building hierarchy into a Simulink model
  • Creating reusable model components using subsystems, libraries, and model references

If your application is signal processing or communications, please refer to the Signal Processing with Simulink course.
