Run Simulations

Simulate models interactively or in batch mode, create repeatable simulations using the model operating point, run Monte Carlo simulations

You can interactively and programmatically start, stop, and pause individual simulations from the Simulink® Editor. You can view your simulation results live and interact with the simulation in various ways, including changing tunable parameters. You can also step forward or back through a simulation, and perform iterative simulations without recompiling your model.

With programmatic simulation, you can run and control simulations from the MATLAB® Command Window. You can also programmatically enable simulation timeouts, capture simulation errors, and access simulation metadata.

Using either the Multiple Simulations panel in the Simulink Editor or the Multiple Simulations programmatic interface, you can provide a collection of inputs to a model and run multiple simulations with these inputs. With the parsim function, you can run multiple simulations in parallel. This is useful in situations such as model testing, design of experiments, Monte Carlo analysis, and model optimization.


  • Run Individual Simulations
    Run and control individual simulations directly from the Simulink Editor or programmatically from the MATLAB command prompt
  • Run Multiple Simulations
    Provide collection of inputs to model and run multiple simulations with these inputs using the parsim function, the batchsim function, or the Multiple Simulations panel in Simulink
