Model Verification

Verify time- and frequency-domain characteristics of linearized models against specified bounds, verify subsystems

Simulink® Control Design™ software provides model verification blocks to monitor time-domain and frequency-domain characteristics of a linear system computed from a nonlinear Simulink model during simulation. You can use these blocks to define bounds on specific linear system characteristics and check whether these bounds are satisfied during simulation. For more information, see Monitoring Linear System Characteristics in Simulink Models and Verifiable Linear System Characteristics.

Blocks

Check Bode Characteristics Check that Bode magnitude bounds are satisfied during simulation
Check Gain and Phase Margins Check that gain and phase margin bounds are satisfied during simulation
Check Linear Step Response Characteristics Check that step response bounds on linear system are satisfied during simulation
Check Nichols Characteristics Check that gain and phase bounds on Nichols response are satisfied during simulation
Check Pole-Zero Characteristics Check that bounds on pole locations are satisfied during simulation
Check Singular Value Characteristics Check that singular value bounds are satisfied during simulation

Topics

Monitoring Linear System Characteristics in Simulink Models

Monitor time-domain and frequency-domain characteristics of linear systems computed from nonlinear Simulink models during simulation.

Defining a Linear System for Model Verification Blocks

To compute a linear system for model verification, specify linearization inputs, linearization outputs, and when to linearize the model.

Verifiable Linear System Characteristics

You can specify bounds on time-domain and frequency-domain linear system characteristics, and assert that the bounds are satisfied during simulation.

Model Verification at Default Simulation Snapshot Time

Assert that bounds on the linear system characteristics of a nonlinear Simulink model are satisfied at the start of the simulation.

Model Verification at Multiple Simulation Snapshots

Assert that bounds on the linear system characteristics of a nonlinear Simulink model are satisfied at multiple snapshot times.

Model Verification Using Simulink Control Design and Simulink Verification Blocks

Assert that linear system characteristics satisfy specified bounds using a combination of Simulink Control Design and Simulink verification blocks.
