Simulink Basics Tutorial Simulink Basics Tutorial Starting SimulinkBasic ElementsBuilding a SystemRunning Simulations S imulink is a graphical extension to M ATLAB for the modeling and simulation of systems. In Simulink, systems are drawn on screen as block diagrams. Many elements of block diagrams areavailable (such as transfer functions, summing junctions, etc.), as well as virtual input devices(such as function generators) and output devices (such as oscilloscopes). Simulink is integratedwith M ATLAB and data can be easily transferred between the programs. In this tutorial, we will introduce the basics of using Simulink to model and simulate a system. Simulink is supported on Unix, Macintosh, and Windows environments, and it is included in thestudent version of M ATLAB for personal computers. For more information on Simulink, contact the MathWorks . The idea behind these tutorials is that you can view them in one window whilerunning Simulink in another window. Do not confuse the windows, icons, andmenus in the tutorials for your actual Simulink windows. Most images in thesetutorials are not live – they simply display what you should see in your ownSimulink windows. All Simulink operations should be done in your Simulinkwindows. Starting Simulink Simulink is started from the M ATLAB command prompt by entering the following command: simulink Alternatively, you can click on the “Simulink Library Browser” button at the top of the M ATLAB command window as shown below: The Simulink Library Browser window should now appear on the screen. Most of the blocksneeded for modeling basic systems can be found in the subfolders of the main “Simulink” folder(opened by clicking on the “+” in front of “Simulink”).
