File Information

This file contains an aileron actuator model that can be used to develop mechanical designs, determine actuator requirements, compare electrical and hydraulic designs, and design the control system. A number of intermediate models are also included to show you the incremental steps of developing this system. MATLAB scripts show many steps, including optimizing the design, automatically producing reports, and generating C Code. The model is built using Simscape, Simscape Multibody, Simscape Fluids, and Simscape Electronics.
Please read the README.txt file to get started.
To see how to model a mechatronic system, watch this video (4 min):
