which block to use for feedback loop in simulink

Asked by Arun Badigannavar on 15 Jan 2013
where x0=initial value,,,and x value should be updated continuously ,,this I wanted to implement in simulink,,,and I have developed this with using "unit delay" block,,,but for further am changing some values of equation run time ,,,that time my "unit delay" block is starting calculation again from the initial value,,,rather i want my unit delay to take value of present calculated x value,,,,,,,,or anybody can suggest which is the best block to use for feedback loop,ehich takes initial value from defined value and next value from the feedback loop

Both Unit delay and Memory blocks work fine.

Wen i change my constant variable value ,,,i will pass current value to memory block,and my module start comapring memory block and constant block,,, Suppose memory block=10:,constant=20:,,,and wen i change value of my constant block,ie ,constant=35,,,it starts calculation from memory block=20; constant =35,,,,rather i wanna keep the value of memory block from initial ie,memory block started from 10 ,,,,,,(memory=10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 20 20 20 reached and next value should be 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 35 35 35 like this it should flow)but presently am getting(memory= 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 35 35 35 )when i change the value of constant block

Arun, post your code which pauses and coninues your simulation
