Course Details

This course focuses on modeling systems in several physical domains and combine them into a multidomain system in the Simulink® environment using Simscape™.

Topics include:

  • Creating models in various physical domains, such as electrical, mechanical, and hydraulic
  • Interpreting Simscape diagrams
  • Combining Simulink models and Simscape models
  • Modeling energy transfer between different physical domains
  • Creating user-defined Simscape components

Day 1 of 1


Introduction to Simscape and the Physical Network Approach

Objective: Become familiar with the Simscape environment by modeling a simple electrical system.
