Measuring Signal Similarities
Measure signal similarities. It will help you answer questions such as: How do I compare signals with different lengths or different sampling rates? How do I find if there is a signal or just noise in a measurement? Are two signals related? How to measure a delay between two signals (and how do I align them)? How do I compare the frequency content of two signals?…
Modeling the United States Economy
Economists and policymakers are concerned with understanding the dynamics of economies, especially during periods of significant macroeconomic shocks. Although numerous approaches are possible, we will develop a small macroeconomic model in the style of Smets and Wouters.
Modeling a Fault-Tolerant Fuel Control System
This example shows how to combine Stateflow® with Simulink® to efficiently model hybrid systems. This type of modeling is particularly useful for systems that have numerous possible operational modes based on discrete events. Traditional signal flow is handled in Simulink while changes in control configuration are implemented in Stateflow. The model described below represents a fuel control system for a gasoline engine. The system is highly robust in that individual sensor failures are detected and the cont
Anti-Windup Control Using a PID Controller
This example shows how to use anti-windup schemes to prevent integration wind-up in PID controllers when the actuators are saturated. We use the PID Controller block in Simulink® which features two built-in anti-windup methods, back-calculation and clamping, as well as a tracking mode to handle more complex scenarios.
Radar Tracking Using MATLAB Function Block
This example shows how to use an extended Kalman filter with the MATLAB® Function block in Simulink® to estimate an aircraft's position from radar measurements. The filter implementation is found in the MATLAB Function block, the contents of which are stored in the Simulink model itself.
Simulating Automatic Climate Control Systems
This example shows how to simulate the working of an automatic climate control system in a car using Simulink® and Stateflow®. You can enter a temperature value you would like the air in the car to reach by double clicking the User Setpoint in Celsius Block and entering the temperature value. You can also set the External Temperature in Celsius in a similar way. The numerical display on the right-hand side of the model shows the reading of a temperature sensor placed behind the driver's head. This is the te
