This example shows how to initialize a model at a specific operating point for simulation.
Compute a steady-state operating point using one of the following:
State specifications, see Compute Steady-State Operating Points from State Specifications
Output Specifications, see Compute Steady-State Operating Point from Output Specifications
Simulation snapshot, see Compute Operating Points at Simulation Snapshots.
In the Linear Analysis Tool, double-click the computed operating point or simulation snapshot variable in the Linear Analysis Workspace.
The Edit dialog box opens.
Note: If you computed multiple operating points using a simulation snapshot. Select an operating point from the Select Operating Point list.
Click Initialize model.
In the Initialize Model dialog box, specify a Variable Name for the operating point object. Alternatively, you can use the default variable name.
Click OK to export the operating point to the MATLAB® Workspace.
This action also sets the operating point values in the Data Import/Export pane of the Configuration Parameters dialog box. Simulink® derives the initial conditions from this operating point when simulating the model.
Tip: If you want to store this operating point with the model, export the operating point to the Model Workspace instead.
In the Simulink Editor, select Simulation > Run to simulate the model starting at the specified operating point.
