This tutorial uses the sldemo_househeat model to illustrate how you can use Simulink® software to model a dynamic control system. The model defines a heating system and the thermodynamics of a house. It includes the outdoor environment, the thermal characteristics of a house, and the house heating system.
Use this tutorial to explore common Simulink modeling tasks, such as:
Simplify a block diagram by grouping multiple blocks
into a single subsystem block.
See Anatomy of the Control System Model.
Simulate a model, observe results, and change input
parameters to investigate how the system responds.
See Simulate the Control System Model.
Import data from the MATLAB® workspace to the
model, and export runtime data back to MATLAB.
See Move Data Between MATLAB and Simulink Model.
