Is it possible use a battery in Simulink?

Dear all,
I am modeling a power microgrid model, like the example "power_microgrid", however, I wonder wether is feasible interchange the battery model of the example for one developed in Simscape or not?. My question arises because they are different environments, the battery is shown below.

I appreciate your attempt, but even I added a zero crossing block at the output port of the Symscape Electrical battery the error still persisted

Hello Tony,
the Rcond warning can be very common when using specialized power systesm. Essentially, the tool generates matrices behind the scenes, and they can be near singular depending on circuit topologies and parameter values. It can be non-trivial to determine what is causing these. Some things to try is adding snubbers, changing your time step value, removing extremely small or extremely larger circuit parameters. Eliminating parts of the model and and replacing them with controlled current/voltage sources to isolate what is causing the issue is another possibility. There is a chance your model will work just fine though. It is good to compare fixed step to variable step (ode23Tb) to make sure the results line up.
However, the error in your case is that something with the connection of the battery has the wrong signal dimensions. Can you provide a screen shot of both how you have connected the battery to the microgrid and the battery parameter settings?

Dear Joel,
I have started to replace some parts of the model in order to increase the accuracy and flexibility of the model as you former kindly recommended to me, but I am stuck in a error produced by the mode of the simulation "continous".

Can you provide any workaround to overcome this problem?
PD. I wonder, what if I used mode discrete-phasor rather than phasor as I was using initially?
Best regards
