Physical Modeling

Accelerate control design and system-level analysis with physical system models

Engineers working toward an optimized design must develop their software and physical system together. MathWorks physical modeling tools bring accuracy and efficiency to this effort by enabling you to:

  • Assemble system-level models that span multiple physical domains and include the control system in a single environment
  • Create reusable models of your physical system with physical ports, in addition to input and output signals
  • Model custom physical components (mechanical, electrical, and other physical domains) using a MATLAB based physical modeling language
  • Extend your analysis with 3-D visualization and additional simulation methods

You can convert the models of your physical system to C code and deploy the code to other environments for tasks such as hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing. These models support all phases of Model-Based Design.
