Generate operating points, linearizations, or both at triggered events
Simulink® Control Design™
Attach this block to a signal in a model when you want to take
a snapshot of the system's operating point at triggered events such
as when the signal crosses zero or when the signal sends a function
call. You can also perform a linearization at these events. To extract
the operating point or perform the linearization, you need to simulate
the model using either the
Alternatively, you can interactively export the operating point and
linearize the model using the Linear Analysis Tool.
Choose the trigger type in the Block Parameters dialog box, as shown in the following figure.
The possible trigger types are
rising: the signal crosses
zero while increasing.
falling: the signal crosses
zero while decreasing.
either: the signal crosses
zero while either increasing or decreasing.
function-call: the signal
send a function call.
Computing Operating Point Snapshots at Triggered Events illustrates how to use this block.
