You can build an accelerated model, select the simulation mode, and run the simulation from the command prompt or from MATLAB® script. With this flexibility, you can create Accelerator mode MEX-files in batch mode, allowing you to build the C code and executable before running the simulations. When you use the Accelerator mode interactively at a later time, it will not be necessary to generate or compile MEX-files at the start of the accelerated simulations.

a JIT accelerated execution engine without actually simulating the
model. For example, to build an Accelerator mode simulation of
You can control the simulation mode from the command line prompt
by using the
The simulation mode can be
For example, to simulate your model with the Accelerator mode, you would use:
simOut = sim('myModel', 'SimulationMode', 'accelerator');
You can use

specify the model name.
For example, to simulate the currently opened system in the Rapid Accelerator mode, you would use:
simOut = sim(bdroot,'SimulationMode','rapid');
You can use

Unless target code has already been generated, the
first builds the executable and then runs the simulation. However,
if the target code has already been generated and no significant changes
have been made to the model (see Code Regeneration in Accelerated Models for a description),
sim command executes the generated code without
regenerating the code. This process lets you run your model after
making simple changes without having to wait for the model to rebuild.

sim command again to resimulate after
making a change to your model. If the change is minor (adjusting the
gain of a gain block, for instance), the simulation runs without regenerating
You can programmatically control the Accelerator mode and Rapid Accelerator mode build process and the amount of information displayed during the build process. See Customize the Build Process for details on why doing so might be advantageous.
SimCompilerOptimization to set the degree
of optimization used by the compiler when generating code for acceleration.
The permitted values are
The default is
Enter the following at the command prompt to turn on compiler optimization:
set_param('myModel', 'SimCompilerOptimization', 'on')
SimCompilerOptimization is set to
JIT accelerated mode, the simulation time for some models improves,
while the build time can become slower.
AccelVerboseBuild parameter to display
