Model Interconnection

Series, parallel, and feedback connections; block diagram building

Interconnecting models of components allows you to construct models of control systems. You can conceptualize your control system as a block diagram containing multiple interconnected components, such as a plant and a controller connected in a feedback configuration. Using model arithmetic or interconnection commands, you combine models of each of these components into a single model representing the entire block diagram.
