When you want Simulink® to select a solver for simulating the model, use auto solver. Auto solver chooses a suitable solver and sets the maximum step size of the simulation.
For new models, Simulink selects auto solver and sets the type to variable-step by default. For an existing model, you can use auto solver to select a solver.
vdp and click the solver link in the lower-right corner. The
Solver information pane opens.
In the pane, click the View solver settings button to open the Solver pane of the model configuration parameters.
Under Solver selection, set Type to fixed

When you simulate the model, auto solver selects a fixed-step or variable-step solver according to your preference and calculates the maximum step size it recommends. To see the results, open the Solver information pane.
Click the Accept suggested settings button to apply the recommendations of auto solver. To select different settings, click the View solver settings button and make changes in the configuration parameters Solver pane.
This chart describes the heuristics of auto solver.
Power Systems™ models, auto solver selects
ode23tb. These systems
can have circuits with nonlinear models, especially circuit breakers and power
electronics. Such nonlinear models require a stiff solver.
If the number of continuous states in the model exceeds the
NumStatesForStiffnessChecking value, auto solver uses
ode15s. It does not calculate the stiffness of the model. The
default value for this parameter is 1000. You can change this value using
If the number of continuous states in the model is less than the
NumStatesForStiffnessChecking value, auto solver calculates the
stiffness of the model. A model is stiff if the stiffness exceeds the
StiffnessThreshold value. The default value for this parameter is
1000. You can change this value using
