Physical Modeling with Simscape

Steve Miller, MathWorks

In this webinar we demonstrate physical modeling using Simscape. We will show you how physical connections make it easy to model physical systems, including electrical, mechanical, and hydraulic components. A hydraulic scissor jack, controlled by an electrical circuit, is used to show some of the modeling, simulation, and deployment capabilities of Simscape.

This webinar will include demonstrations and explanations to show you how to:
• Model electrical, mechanical, and hydraulic systems
• Create custom components with Simscape language
• Enhance your models with Simscape add-on libraries
• Detect causes of slow simulations using simulation statistics
• Run simulations in real-time for HIL testing

Physical systems often span multiple physical domains, and require modeling techniques beyond input/output blocks and transfer functions.  Simscape enables engineers to use physical modeling methods within the Simulink environment, and leverages solver technology designed for physical systems.  With the foundation library, Simscape language, and add-on libraries, a wide range of systems can be modeled, including multibody systems. Teams working with Simscape models can share them without requiring licenses for add-on products while they perform tasks such as parameter sweeps and generate code for HIL testing.
