Intro to Modeling & Simulation - Mathworks’ MATLAB®, Simulink®, & Stateflow®

This 2-day course is intended for beginner level users of modeling tools with experience in software development. The goal of this class is to provide a basic introduction to Simulink and Stateflow block sets, applying them to implement basic features.  The class is hands on with demos and examples throughout, ending with more specific, in depth exercises, such as controlling hydraulic cylinders and transmission clutches. Best practices and MAB guidelines will be employed throughout the training. 

Topics include:

  • Modeling mathematical equations
  • Modeling logical equations
  • Model Architecture using subsystems, libraries, & model reference
  • Understanding the Mask, Model, & Base Workspaces
  • Interfacing into Simulink
  • Fixed-Point Overview
  • Code Generation & Model Configuration Overview
  • Unit Testing
