SimHydraulics® provides component libraries for modeling and simulating hydraulic systems. It includes models of hydraulic components, such as pumps, valves, actuators, pipelines, and hydraulic resistances. You can use these components to model fluid power systems such as front-loader, power steering, and landing gear actuation systems. Fuel supply and water supply systems can also be modeled using SimHydraulics.
SimHydraulics models can be used to develop control systems and test system-level performance. You can parameterize your models using MATLAB® variables and expressions, and design control systems for your hydraulic system in Simulink®. You can add electrical, mechanical, pneumatic, and other components to your hydraulic model using Simscape™ and test them in a single simulation environment. To deploy models to other simulation environments, including hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) systems, SimHydraulics supports C-code generation.
