Modeling Electronic and Electromechanical Systems

When you model and analyze an electronic or electromechanical system using Simscape™ Electronics™ software, your workflow might include the following tasks:

  1. Create a Simulink® model that includes electronic or electromechanical components.

    In the majority of applications, it is most natural to model the physical system using Simscape and Simscape Electronics blocks, and then develop the controller or signal processing algorithm in Simulink.

    For more information about modeling the physical system, see Essential Electronic Modeling Techniques.

  2. Define component data by specifying electrical or mechanical properties as defined on a datasheet.

    For more information about parameterizing blocks, see Parameterizing Blocks from Datasheets.

  3. Configure the solver options.

    For more information about the settings that most affect the solution of a physical system, see Setting Up Solvers for Physical Models (Simscape).

  4. Run the simulation.

    For more information on how to perform time-domain simulation of an electronic system, see Simulating an Electronic System.
