Simulating Models

You can perform transient simulation of SimElectronics models. The simulations can be run on your desktop (variable step) or in a real-time environment (fixed step). Every aspect of your simulation can be automated using scripts in MATLAB, including configuring the model, entering simulation settings, and running batches of simulations. The steady-state solve capability can be used to reduce simulation time by automatically removing unwanted transients at the start of simulation.

Optimization algorithms enable you to automatically tune parameters in simulation. This approach enables you, for example, to find designs that minimize power consumption or required actuator torque. To accelerate optimization tasks and other design studies that require many simulations, you can use Parallel Computing Toolbox to distribute your SimElectronics simulations across multiple cores or a cluster of computers.
