Get Started with Simulink Control Design

Linearize models and design control systems

Simulink® Control Design™ lets you design and analyze control systems modeled in Simulink. You can automatically tune arbitrary SISO and MIMO control architectures, including PID controllers. PID autotuning can be deployed to embedded software for automatically computing PID gains in real time. You can also implement active disturbance rejection control, extremum-seeking control, and model reference adaptive control for applications where the controller must adapt to changing plant and disturbance dynamics.

You can find operating points and compute exact linearizations of Simulink models at various operating conditions. Simulink Control Design provides tools that let you compute simulation-based frequency responses without modifying your model.


Interactive Learning

Control Design Onramp with Simulink describes the task, displays an interactive model, and assesses whether the model matches the requirements set by the training.
