Tuning, Analysis, and Validation
Tune control system parameters and analyze results at the command line
After your model is set up for tuning, the
systune command adjusts the tunable coefficients to meet your design requirements. To validate the result, examine system responses and evaluate how closely tuning goals are met. For a control system modeled in Simulink®, write the tuned parameter values to the model for validation against the full nonlinear system. For more information, see Validate Tuned Control System.

Analysis and Validation
- Interpret Numeric Tuning Results
Tuning reports from
systuneand Control System Tuner give you an overview of how well the tuned control system meets your tuning goals.
- Visualize Tuning Goals
Tuning-goal plots let you visualize your design requirements against tuned system responses, to see where and by how much tuning goals are satisfied or violated.
- Validate Tuned Control System
When you tune a control system, validate the results by examining system responses with the tuned parameters.
- Extract Responses from Tuned MATLAB Model at the Command Line
Analyze responses of a tuned control system by using
getIOTransferand related functions to compute responses between various points in the model.
