How Simulink Works

Simulink® is a software package that enables you to model, simulate, and analyze systems whose outputs change over time. Such systems are often referred to as dynamic systems. The Simulink software can be used to explore the behavior of a wide range of real-world dynamic systems, including electrical circuits, shock absorbers, braking systems, and many other electrical, mechanical, and thermodynamic systems. This section explains how Simulink works.

Simulating a dynamic system is a two-step process. First, a user creates a block diagram, using the Simulink model editor, that graphically depicts time-dependent mathematical relationships among the system's inputs, states, and outputs. The user then commands the Simulink software to simulate the system represented by the model from a specified start time to a specified stop time.
