Simscape™ provides an environment for modeling and simulating physical systems spanning mechanical, electrical, hydraulic, and other physical domains. It provides fundamental building blocks from these domains that you can assemble into models of physical components, such as electric motors, inverting op-amps, hydraulic valves, and ratchet mechanisms. Because Simscape components use physical connections, your models match the structure of the system you are developing.
Simscape models can be used to develop control systems and test system-level performance. You can extend the libraries using the MATLAB® based Simscape language, which enables text-based authoring of physical modeling components, domains, and libraries. You can parameterize your models using MATLAB variables and expressions, and design control systems for your physical system in Simulink®. To deploy your models to other simulation environments, including hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) systems, Simscape supports C-code generation.
