I am trying to simulate a pod for the Hyperloop 4 competition, and I already have the main parts finished, nevertheless, the goal is to study the vibrational behavior of the structure applying some gaps between rails. At the moment, the pod accelerates with the provided imput. The problem arises when a small change is made in the Simulink and it has to compile and simulate again (2+ hours) to see the new results. This is due to the fact that the pod has to be at max speed when facing the gaps, so an initial rail of 500 m has been set so that the pod accelerates, which makes the simulation too long and heavy to process (800+ m in total). My question is, is there any other way to provide the wheels with some initial angular velocity so that the pod achieves the desired velocity and MATLAB only had to simulate few seconds?
I attach some screenshots of the SimScape and simulation. Please ask for any additional info you may need.
Thanks for considering my request,
