Engines & Motors
The Simscape™ Driveline™ Engines & Motors library provides blocks for combustion-engine modeling. You can model a single-cylinder spark-ignition and diesel engines, or a reciprocating engine that contains multiple cylinders. You can also model just the piston mechanism of a combustion engine using the Piston block.
