PS Constant Delay

Delay input physical signal by specified time

Library

Physical Signals/Delays

Description

The PS Constant Delay block generates the output physical signal, y, by delaying the input physical signal, u:

y = u ( tτ )

where τ is the delay time.

The delay time is constant throughout the simulation. You specify the value of the delay time as the Delay time parameter.

For the initial time interval, when t <= StartTime + τ, the block outputs the Input history parameter value.

    Note  

    • When simulating a model that contains blocks with delays, memory allocation for storing the data history is controlled by the Delay memory budget [kB] parameter in the Solver Configuration block. If this budget is exceeded, simulation errors out. You can adjust this parameter value based on your available memory resources.

    • For recommendation on how to linearize a model that contains blocks with delays, see Linearizing with Simulink Linearization Blocks.

Dialog Box and Parameters

Input history

The output signal value during the initial time interval, until the specified delay time elapses after the start of simulation. The default value is 0.

Delay time

The delay time for the signal. The parameter value must be positive. The default value is 1 s.

Ports

The block has one physical signal input port and one physical signal output port.
