Creating a Basic Simulink Model in MATLAB


MATLAB Simulink is a powerful tool for modeling dynamic systems using a graphical interface. In this guide, we'll show you how to create a simple Simulink model to simulate a basic dynamic system with sample code and examples.

Starting Simulink

You can launch Simulink from MATLAB's command window or the MATLAB Apps tab.

% Example: Starting Simulink

Creating a New Model

In Simulink, you can create a new model using the File menu or the MATLAB command.

% Example: Creating a new Simulink model

Adding Blocks

You can add blocks to your model by dragging them from the Simulink Library Browser.

% Example: Adding blocks to the model
% Describe how to add blocks to the model

Connecting Blocks

Connect blocks by dragging lines from output ports to input ports.

% Example: Connecting blocks in the model
