I have to simulations runing side by side one as a simulation and other on a real time PLC so the problem I am facing is to run both the simulation simultaneously. Is there any way to do it?

Hello every one, I am using a Real time target PLC for runing a control algorithm and on the other end I have a wind turbine plant. The idea is to measure the real time analysis for the behavior of pitch control over different operating regions. So in this way It is necessary for me to run both the simulink window run at the same time. I would like to ask if there is any such way to do it. Looking forward to hear from you guys. I hope I clear my point. Now looking forward for some help.

If you are interested in real-time testing using your PLC target hardware, we recommend using Simulink Real-Time to deploy your Simulink model onto a real-time Speedgoat target (or custom target PC). Your model, running in real-time, can then establish communication between the PLC using a protocol available to both target computers (i.e. TCP, EtherCAT). I believe this would satisfy your need to "run both simulations simultaneously."
